56-1610 History of Science


When science is examined through the lens of history, we can better understand its methodology as well as the social forces that shape its advancement and impact on society. By examining not only the contributions but also the lives of people like Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Darwin, and Einstein we discover a human element to science that is so often ignored. This historical approach enables us to discover the dynamic interaction between science and other disciplines such as religion, technology, art and humanities, war, and politics.
