Biology: In the Language of the People
Received Date: January 19, 2019; Published Date: February 07, 2019
As technology and the ability to gather ever-growing amounts of data move further into the realms of biology and human performance, communication and transparency become increasingly important. As scientists, engineers, and medical practitioners, we can often lose sight of the idea that this communication should extend to the non-technical public. In the words of William Butler Yeats, “Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people.” We would all do well to remember such advice even during scientific pursuits and documentation.
