Scientists argue all the time but still work together

Innovation is often sparked by many people racing to solve a problem. Yet despite this fierce competition, the scientific community is fairly congenial. Lorraine Daston is director emerita of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, and she joins host Krys Boyd to discuss how partnerships are forged in science, and how that has added to the breadth and depth of knowledge about climate change, pandemics and other fields. Her book is “Rivals: How Scientists Learned to Cooperate.”
