The paper discusses how "State of Fear" makes it clear that one really needs to investigate bias when evaluating a proposed scientific theory. "State of Fear" also makes it clear that it is not always easy to determine potential sources of bias. For example, a modern audience can easily identify racism as a source of bias for eugenicists, while this was covered up in the past. The paper contends that "State of Fear" makes some very salient points about the need for more careful evaluation of scientific statements. The paper emphasizes that the goal of Crichton's novel was not necessarily to advocate his point of view, but to encourage people to do their own investigations into the issue.
