Hobbit Trap: Money, Fame, Science and /Henneberg, Mac/Paper/1862547912/S023-F
When the remains of a tiny hominid were found on the Indonesian island of Flores in 2004, they were claimed to be a totally new species of human ancestor, nicknamed the ‘Hobbit’. International scientist Professor Maciej Henneberg believed something wasn’t quite right – and he wasn’t the only one.
The Hobbit Trap describes how the case against the ‘new species’ theory developed, and examines modern pressures which have put academia under the hammer and resulted in a decline in scientific standards in Australia and around the world.
