Understanding Science by Arthur N. Strahler

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Understanding Science Humanity reaps the many advantages of science while bemoaning the frequent misapplications and abuses of modern technology Yet far too many of us admit to possessing little if any real knowledge of what scientists actually do why they do it or whether they should be otherwise occupied in more productive pursuits Non scientists need to appreciate the nature purpose and goals of science Conversely the narrow focus of many science enthusiasts fails to recognize that science cannot help but interact with sources of knowledge beyond its realm placing scientific endeavors within a swirling caldron of competing knowledge claims In Understanding Science noted author and researcher Arthur N Strahler whose career in science spans more than half a century fills this double void by offering insights into both the philosophy and the sociology of science
