The Changing Philosophy of Secondary School Science.
Hurd, Paul DeHart
The educational irony of this century has been to acquaint young people with the great ideas and achievements of science and then to deny them any insights into the social arrangements which can make these achievements of recognizable benefits to mankind. A science based culture cannot be understood by the separate study of disciplines, each with its own body of technical information and autonomous theories. The science knowledge of most worth for general education is that which reflects the spirit of science, and the social, the cultural, the technological and the humane phases of the scientific enterprise.
