 Museums As A Mirror of Society   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Science progressed over the years, new techniques and new insights arose, permitting new and hitherto unthought-of questions to be asked; but the function and role of the object and collection, as well as its users remained basically the same.
Science centers differ fundamentally from museums of science, as they are primarily devoted to science education instead of the care for objects.
In this way, science is presented as a one-way success-story, usually with little attention for the interdisciplinary and open-ended scientific process of trial and error, for the human and social context or for science as an ever-present and indispensable component of our daily world.

 Science Quotes
Science is nothing but trained and organized 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 as far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stone, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house, and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
Experimental science is the queen of sciences and the goal of all speculation.

 Johann Gottlieb Fichte [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The usual English translations of this term, such as "science of knowledge," "doctrine of science," or "theory of science," can be misleading, since today these phrases carry connotations that can be excessively theoretical or too reminiscent of the natural sciences.
The Wissenschaftslehre is devoted to establishing the foundation of individual sciences such as geometry, whose first principle is said to be the task of limiting space in accordance with a rule.
Thus the Wissenschaftslehre seeks to justify the cognitive task of the science of geometry, i.e., its systematic efforts at spatial construction in the form of theorems validly deduced from axioms known with self-evident certainty.

 ULTIMATE SCIENCE FICTION POETRY GUIDE: History of Science Poetry
Science Fiction Poetry has a prehistory from before the genre of Science Fiction was established.
To understand this, we consider the history of natural history and science in poetry from Ancient Greece through the early 20th Century, when Science Fiction and Fantasy became recognized as distinct genres, and note the poetic output of major non-genre scientists.
That is, poetry portrayed the emergence of the "new science" of Kepler, Galileo, Descartes, and William Harvey as culture left its Neoplatonic Aristotelian Astrological Alchemical medieval heritage and entered a post-Ptolemaic era.
