  • Science And Its Impact On Science

    While science serves as a trustworthy means, humans have disrespected it as an insufficient end. The results produced by scientific experiments are legitimate to a particular population, in a particular environment, at a particular time. The results of such do not substantiate claims or assertions of the broadest category of “human nature”. Science may lead us to conclude a correlation of human behavior, but to claim a causation would be vastly outside the testable scope of science. Godfrey-Smith

    this class began, I thought of myself as a person who tended to lean towards science as fact-based and found it hard to believe in some philosophical and religious claims that were not backed up by experimentation and evidence.

These problems in science education lead to long term problems of not creating forward thinkers who are committed to driving science for the sake of scientific curiosity as opposed

    The objectivity of science would be contingent on our trust in the scientists who are feeding us knowledge. We often believe these scientists, but is there actually a reason for us to trust what they are passing on to us? What would science be if they had not been telling the truth?
