Reassessing Possible Naturalized Ideology Regarding Science, Education, and Religion
Campbell, Todd
Science Education Review, v5 n2 p44-49 2006
This manuscript asks questions about what may be the naturalized, or taken for granted, ideologies in science education regarding religion. There have been times in history when religion has taken a dogmatic role in limiting the practices of science (e.g., the Roman Catholic Church and Galileo). This manuscript reflects on the dogmatic rule of religion and argues that now science may be in danger of imposing dogmatic ideals through reaching beyond the capacities of an empirical way of knowing. A Science, Technology, and Society (STS) approach to science teaching is considered as a possible mechanism for honoring both science and religion as valid yet different ways of knowing and better addressing students' integration of science learned in school into their everyday lives.
