Response to My Critics

Lynn Eden

Last, she tackles the difficult issue of taking a stand on the science in Whole World on Fire(Eden, 2004) while claiming to be a thoroughgoing social constructivist.

Underestimating the Consequences of Use of Nuclear Weapons: Condemned to Repeat the Past's Errors?

Lynn Eden
Physics and Society , 2005

Seriously studied for almost sixty years, nothing would seem better understood than the effects and terrible consequences of the use of nuclear weapons.
