 PERCEPTIONS OF SCIENCE: Face Values: How Portraits Win Friends and Influence People -- Fara 299 (5608): 831 -- Science
Promoters of science have always appreciated the power of pictures, and one of the most famous is Godfrey Kneller's Newton (see the figure, right), painted in 1689, 2 years after the Principia was first published.
In 1689, when Newton visited Kneller's London studio, he was an obscure Cambridge scholar, author of an esoteric book incomprehensible to all but a few learned mathematicians.
Kneller's fragile, privileged scholar became the "yeoman's son...at work in the wells of truth, and wresting from nature secrets hidden from the foundation of the world...a very beagle of truth." Phrenology was at its peak, and Kneller was praised for showing Newton with "a brow that could measure the universe" (4).

 Spirits, Witches & Science
Of course, the laws of science contain no matter and have no energy either and therefore do not exist except in people's minds...It's best to refuse to believe in either ghosts or the laws of science.
In order to explain how and why the rise of modern science became tied to beliefs in spirit phenomena in mid-17th-century England, I think we need to discuss briefly a continental phenomenon at the end of the 16th century, and look at the impact it had on early 17th-century English religious developments.
A serious and concerted attack on beliefs in witchcraft and demonic possession had been launched at the end of the 16th century in connection with a series of spectacular exorcisms that were quite literally staged before thousands of witnesses in France between 1566 and 1599.

 Political Science @ Chicago
From the very beginning, the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago has been a pioneer in the development of social scientific understandings of government and politics.
"The Chicago department was the cutting edge of development of the field of political science," Pritchett recalled of his days as a graduate student.
The University of Chicago and its Political Science Department have maintained the unabashed intellectualism, the disregard for disciplinary and subdisciplinary boundaries, the commitment to diversity of approach and method, and the pure appreciation of fine scholarship that have always been the distinguishing features of this institution.

 Science v. Bush: You Lose (NDC)
The White House has sacked prominent scientists from presidential advisory committees, science advocacy groups have released lengthy catalogues of alleged scientific abuses by the administration and both sides have traded accusations at meetings and in the pages of research journals.
Marburger, Bush's science adviser, sees it differently: ``The really important questions here are ethical questions; they're not science questions.'' Democrats further politicized stem cell research when they invited Ron Reagan, son of the late Republican president, to speak at their convention in Boston this summer.
He said one candidate was turned down because she had served on the board of a nonprofit organization dedicated to international reproductive health, another because she supported a woman's right to an abortion.

Louis Pasteur concludes that infectious diseases are caused by living organisms called "germs." An early practical consequence was Joseph Lister's development of antisepsis by using carbolic acid to disinfect wounds.
Robert Koch validates germ theory of disease and helps initiate the science of bacteriology with a paper pinpointing a bacterium as the cause of anthrax.
Louis Pasteur develops method of attenuating a virulent pathogen (for chicken cholera) so that it immunizes but does not infect; in 1881 he devises an anthrax vaccine and in 1885, a rabies vaccine.

 Western Philosophy
Aristotle of Thrace (384-322 BCE) the greatest of all Greek philosophers, founder of logic and many branches of science, was educated in Plato’s school.
The growth of natural science was a major influence on the development of bourgeois thinking prior to the nineteenth century with Isaac Newton (1642-1727) among the most prominent of British natural scientists of the period prior to the Industrial Revolution.
A particularly important group, in relation to the revolution in natural science, was the Vienna Circle, convened from 1922 by Moritz Schlick and including Rudolph Carnap, Otto Neurath, Kurt Gödel, A J Ayer and drawing on the ideas of Ernst Mach and Ludwig Wittgenstein, and with influence that extended across the world.

The LSND results cannot be checked against the Super-Kamiokande results, however, because the two experiments are looking for different types of oscillations.
