On Redefining "Science" and "Technology" in Educational Objectives.
Revak, Robert Stephan
A new philosophy for science and technology is initiated in this paper for educational purposes. Cattell's theory of fluid and crystallized intelligence is analyzed. Science is described as a loose process of rejecting conjectures with temporarily accepted emerging ones used as alternative ways of explaining phenomena. The emerging conjectures have the nature of developing toward points of crystallization when not rejected. Technology is equated with crystallized intelligence, science with the development of fluid intelligence. The philosophy for education is thus referred to by linking the act of communicating with science through the development of fluid intelligence. The author points out that such a philosophy is responsive to an everchanging societal situation. This paper is an attempt to provoke fluidity and initiate some act of communicating with the reader. A series of responses between the author and his committee members is also presented. (Author/CC)
