Star Trek’s half-human, half-Vulcan Mr. Spock embodies the perceived conflict between emotion and logic: His human heritage often seems to thwart his logical Vulcan nature. However, material researcher Ilona Stengel shows that emotions can support and enrich scientific pursuits. She offers wonderful insights about how emotions contribute to camraderie and productivity, both in Star Trek and in her own professional experience, but leaves you wishing for more examples about emotion’s role in scientific endeavor. getAbstract recommends her insights to researchers and team builders.
