Como é realmente o trabalho de um cientista? Enquanto neurocientista, Stuart Firestein brinca: "Parece-se muito menos com o método científico e muito mais com a flatuosidade... no escuro." Através desta palestra espirituosa, Firestein atinge o cerne da ciência revelando como ela é realmente exercida e sugere que devemos valorizar aquilo que não sabemos — ou a "ignorância de boa qualidade" — da mesma forma que valorizamos o que sabemos.
