The revolutionary generation was heavily influenced by the Enlightenment, with its great emphasis on science; they based much of their political theory on scientific ideas and defended their theories by analogies from the physical, mechanical, and biological sciences.
In his 1751 pamphlet, "Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind," Franklin used the mathematical science of demography to study the population explosion in America as compared with Europe, "predicting that under the American conditions which provided unchecked growth, the population would double every twenty or twenty-five years" (p.
Cohen's overarching thesis is that science influenced the political theories and debates of the Revolutionary generation, by providing them with ideals to achieve and models to imitate, as well as analogies to support and illustrate their arguments in debate.

 Re-Emerging Yogic Science
This is an age of renaissance for the ancient science of yoga.
This is conceived in yogic literature as the journey from the development of the potential of annamaya kosha to the identification of the Self with higher consciousness in anandamaya kosha.
Re-emerging yogic science on the basis of its theoretical models, practical approach and exploratory studies has given high hopes of being an effective intervener for the promotion of health, subjective well-being and desired societal transformation.

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 1751, Maupertius, in Système de la Nature, put forward a theory of pangenesis, in which an embryo contained particles derived from all parts of the parent, and heritable novelties arose from changes in fluids or were induced by the environment.

With respect to this research, we have always taken the stance of defenders of Type II error, cautioning not to dismiss a phenomenon that may be beneficial to society just because it is difficult to explain by the current dogma of science.
Often it was summarily denied publication, on such grounds as “not being appropriate for this journal” or “supporting hypothesis outside the realm of normal science”.
And in science, if something is not published, it does not exist.

Today in the minds of many Benjamin Franklin is remembered as one of the Founding Fathers, and revered for his contributions to the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitutional Convention and his role in finally convincing the French to join America's fight for Independence.
While all of these accomplishments are certainly noteworthy and would be the defining achievement in the career of most, it is the science and invention of Benjamin Franklin that propelled him to fame and fortune.
It was his love of science and the pursuit of knowledge, however, that brought out the inventor in Franklin.

In the USA, the importance of scientific knowledge was emphasized by such early Americans as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, the former founding the Philadelphia Academy of Science in 1751.
The familiar justification for mandatory math and science education is that today's world is so heavily dependent on mathematics and science (in large part through technology) that everyone needs to be proficient in those areas.

This episode illustrates how Cohen's perspective enriches our understandings of perennial subjects of scholarly inquiry; though the controversy over unicameral versus bicameral legislatures has long been a staple of historians' understandings of the evolution of American constitutionalism,[6] no previous scholar has noted the invocation of scientific analogies by the key figures in that dispute.
In his fifth and final chapter, "Science and the Constitution," Cohen studies science as it influenced the political thought of James Madison and other members of the Federal Convention of 1787, as it emerges in the text of the Constitution, and as it was used by Madison to defend the Constitution in his essays in

 Science -- Service 284 (5421): 1751
Ever since the early 1940s, when Glenn Seaborg and his Berkeley colleagues created the first handful of artificial elements beyond the 94 that exist in nature, physicists have vied to forge the next heaviest element.
The most recent milestone came in January when researchers at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia, won a race to create the long-sought element 114 (Science, 22 January, p.
Element 114 was a special prize because its 30-second lifetime seemed to confirm predictions of an island of stability--a realm of superheavy elements including 114 and its neighbors, whose nuclei have an internal structure that makes them more stable than heavier and lighter isotopes.
