  Science Fiction and the Feminist Movement
Science fiction, as a literary genre, is commonly accepted as a male realm.
Science Fiction, as a genre, was established in the late 1890s and 1900s with the writings of Englishmen H. Wells.
The field of science fiction continued to grow in the forties and fifties, an era often referred to as "The Golden Age" of science fiction.

 Reviews: November 1984
Thurber's essay in intellectual history is worth noting as perhaps the most far reaching of the intellectual contributions that the text makes: he examines the history, meaning, and influence of the concept of the sublime and supplements the argument advanced by Brian Aldiss and others that SF is essentially a sublime/Gothic genre of writing.
Whatever scientists do is sublime, for good or evil;...it is the process, the science, which is as new, as wondrous, and as powerful in its way as Frankenstein's monster.
In this bibliography, Betty King has set out to create a reference book for teachers and readers of SF "in their efforts to locate [female] characters about whom they want to read." It includes only works that are or have been available in book form: novels plus collections of short stories and novellas.

 Science Timeline
In 1678, Huygens, in a communication to the Academie des Science, propounded a wave theory of light propagated through 'aether,' and held that every point on a wave is itself a source of new waves.
Thus the connections which science establishes are "entirely arbitrary," and the "utmost effort of human reason is to reduce the principles, productive of natural phenomena, to a greater simplicity" (Hume 1738:30).
In 1742, Jean Le Rond D'Alembert introduced the principle which permitted the reduction of a problem in dynamics to one in statics: Kinetic equilibrium is obtained by inventing a fictional force equal in magnitude to the body in question and opposite in acceleration.

In the year 1692 in the coastal village of Salem (Danvers) Massachusetts, fear and hysteria gripped an animistic population living in fear of devils and demons.
Ignorance of science, inability to explain bad fortune, and fear of devils could easily be seen to combine to produce a mob mentality.
These factors however, existed as well prior to 1692 when there were no such arrests and executions.

 Mars Global Surveyor Science Sampler Data Set Collection (VOLINFO)
The science observations were acquired during the descending leg of each orbit; that is, as the spacecraft moved from north to south.
Science objectives of radio science investigations include measurement of small perturbations in spacecraft velocity from Doppler shifts on transmitted signals, followed by inference of detailed gravitational fields from solutions of systems of simultaneous equations based on such measurements.
Many images on the MGS Science Sampler volume are more than 4,000 rows (lines) and it was thought that increasing the size of the images would potentially make it more difficult for investigators to display and use the images.

Edison, the apostle of reason, the very embodiment of the new, becomes the agent for reinstating the Ideal, as he himself re-enacts the old religious and cultural mythologies in modern scientific guise.
This is the paradox at the heart of Tomorrow's Eve and of Villiers' attitude to science.
The novel's recurring theme of replication is carried one step further by the author in that the old gods, myths, and beliefs--seemingly vanquished by science --are repeated in new technological modes; even the great poetic works--the Bible, Paradise Lost, and Faust--become synthesized and replayed.

Various aspects of western applied science entered Japan from the very beginning of contact with the Portuguese - weapons, navigational aids (the compass and the astrolabe) and elementary medicine.
However, it was only from the later half of the eighteenth century that pure science and more advanced applied science were able to enter Japan on a fairly large scale.
Study of languages led to the study of science and major translations were done.

 Science of Hadith
In most cases, the words sunnah and hadith are used as interchangeable synonyms by the scholars of the science of hadith.
But before we enter the discussion on dirayat al-hadith, its origin and development, it is necessary to study the course of development of the science of hadith among the Shi`ah and the Ahl al-Sunnah from the point of view of style of compilation of the texts during various periods.
However, this phase of exposition should be regarded as a period of langour in the history of development of the science of hadith; because, instead of a gradual growth, it marked a stage when most of the discussions went round and round in a definite circle without any progress or breakthrough.
