STEM Is Not Enough: Education for Success in the Post-Scientific Society
Hill, Christopher T.
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v28 n1 p69-73 Feb 2019
In this paper, I briefly review the concept of the Post-Scientific Society and then present some of the confirming evidence for the aptness of the concept. This leads to important implications for how we should think about education and workforce development in the twenty-first century. Both require the incorporation of a very high cognitive level of scientific and technical knowledge with deep understanding of human wants, needs, and behaviors, as well as a substantial appreciation for how design will affect the success of those technologies in application.
