Introduction
Science may be one of the most difficult “things” to unveil. It’s nearly impossible to completely grasp science as anything other than a certain phenomenon. Luckily with the evolution of knowledge and the “founders” of science, we can better understand how things have come to be and if they’ll remain as such. Scientific knowledge has undergone an evolutionary shift starting with triumphalism and arriving at the present-day modern sciences including theories of evolution and an understanding of DNA as a double-helical molecule. Phenomenal pioneers such as Aristotle, Dalton, and Hippocrates have paved the way for new inventions, discoveries, and theories.
Triumphalism is the view that the progress of science is somewhat gradual and progressive. Triumphalism is still relevant today because even in scientific research, answers are not discovered instantaneously. Cures and treatments come about very gradually as one’s contributions to the field builds on others. Gradual progression leads to new revelation of truth.
Another form of science theory is known as social constructivism. This view holds that there is a social construct [structure] that produces meaningful knowledge. This view usually holds stern stances on belief but can fluctuate based on the societal view at the time. These variations can include beliefs in politics, economics, political views, religious views, social evolution or culture. Present-day science is seen as the ultimate peak of knowledge
