  • Heroic Model Of Science
    705 words
    The 'heroic model' of science is one of the most influential phenomena in history. This surge of value-free knowledge, filled with realism, bold justification, absolute truth and complete objectivity, changed the way in which the world was perceived and how the future would be viewed. The 'heroic model' changed the rules and ushered western civilization into a new era, filled with wonderfully shocking scientific surprises. The backlash from the 'heroic model' was so powerful that it heavily infl...
  • Religion And Science
    422 words
    The Truth About Scientology Scientology was created around 1950 by a science fiction author, L. Ron Hubbard. Scientology was presented as a religious philosophy, but is actually a warped sense of both religion and science, fused together to create a belief system that is quite damaging to people's psychological state. Scientologists believe that man is ultimately capable of determining the outcome of all aspects of his life: mental, emotional, as well as physical. It is a twentieth century relig...
  • Most Obvious Truth To Foundation
    699 words
    Grace Palley has said, All fiction is a lie, but at the heart of that lie is a truth. This quote directly applies to Issac Asimov's, Foundation.

  • Empiricism Approach To Science
    698 words
    I will explain in the following paper why I believe that realism and instrumentalism are erroneous approaches to science and why empiricism seems to be the more valid approach. I believe that truth is relative to language. The word theory in greek means to be in front of. Our science is limited by our language, because we use our language as a way to construct our world. We use our language and theories to paint over the world what we think exists and while we use that language to create that re...
  • Limitations Of Science And Observation
    1,366 words
    The Dark Ages was a period of stupidity and ignorance. People destroyed what they feared, and people feared the unknown. People spent their waking days just trying to stay alive- from wandering vagrants, disease, age, and the elements: fire, water, earth, air. These were the basic elements that everything was composed of. The modern belief is that alchemy was the precursor to today's physical sciences. In reality, alchemy was, and still is a separate branch of science. In many instances, alchemy...
