Science fiction is a form of fiction which deals principally with the impact of imagined science and/or technology upon society or individuals.
Soft science fiction is the subgenre where plots and themes tend to focus on philosophy, psychology, politics and sociology while de-emphasizing the details of technological hardware and physical laws.
The European brand of science fiction proper began, however, toward the end of the 19th century with the scientific romances of Jules Verne, whose science was rather on the level of invention, as well as the science-oriented novels of social criticism by H.G. Wells.

 Science
Science covers the broad field of knowledge that deals with observed facts and the relationships among those facts.
Science also differs from other types of knowledge in that scientific progress depends on new ideas expanding or replacing old ones.
The term applied science is sometimes used to refer to scientific research that concentrates on the development of technology.

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 1752, Euler published the proof of the equation relating the number of faces, edges, and vertices of a polyhedron, f+v=e+2.

 • SCIENCE INCARNATE ~
That alone makes science a massively special object of inquiry, for, as we have briefly suggested, the conditions affecting the interpretation of what counts as genuine knowledge and what as error, or knowledge of lesser value, clearly differ very significantly.
Yet this admitted specialness of science, and the distinctive conditions affecting inquiry about science, also prompt thoughts about the terms in which the historical and sociological interpretation of science may have wider interest and applicability.
Nor has science been the only form of culture to clothe its knowers in garments originally cut to fit the religious ascetic and to adapt to its purposes religious tropes of otherworldliness and self-denial.

He made admirable discoveries in science; his philosophical treatises are still well worth reading; his political works are full of insight and replete with the spirit of freedom; and while all these sparks flew off from his anvil, the controversial hammer rained a hail of blows on orthodox priest and bishop.
Nevertheless, as Priestley himself somewhere remarks, the first object of physical science is to ascertain facts, and the service which he rendered to chemistry by the definite establishment of a large number of new and fundamentally important facts, is such as to entitle him to a very high place among the fathers of chemical science.
Science is, I believe, nothing but trained and organised common sense, differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only so far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
