The Nature of Science. A Personal View of Science and How It Has Shaped the Way We Think and Behave.
Aicken, Frederick
Designed to provide a broader and more encompassing approach to science studies, this book contains perspectives on science and its impact on culture. It consists of a series of discrete essays which focus on the interaction of science with religion, philosophy, and lifestyle. Each essay begins with a series of quotations and questions which are intended to direct thought and discussion. Specific essay topics include: (1) what is truth?; (2) facts; (3) fancies; (4) experiments; (5) predictions; (6) models; (7) effects; (8) doubts; and (9) integration. An epilogue and suggestions for further reading for each of the addressed essay topics are also included. (ML)
