  Preface to the second volume of the US edition of Reason in Revolt
The French philosopher Descartes has a strong claim to be the founder of the modern scientific method, while Bacon in England pioneered the method of experimental science and induction (generalizing on the basis of observed facts).
The obsession of the positivists with an imaginary “structure of science”, the fiddling and fussing about meaning and semantics all strikingly resembled the rarified atmosphere and convoluted debates of the medieval Schoolmen.
However, startling developments in modern science have provided the most striking confirmation of the dialectical method, which turns out to have a very great relevance to all aspects of science, and particularly to the cutting edge of modern science.

  Exact Science?
Hence, astronomy and physics may be considered as reasonably exact sciences, though even here when we approach infinite magnitude, as of distance in astronomy, or infinite smallness, as of electrons in physics, and our measuring devices are not sufficiently acute, we discover a wide margin of inexactitude.
Sciences which relate wholly or in part to human nature are considered the least exact.
Genealogy, as one of the sciences in which human nature is a factor, is considered to be one of the less exact sciences.

 What Is Science   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
John Dalton in 1808 first saw the structure of matter as we do today, and what he took from the ancients was not their theory but something richer, their image: the atom.
Science, like art, is not a copy of nature but a re-creation of her.
We have concluded that science is the search that leads to discovery of hidden likenesses in nature and the organizaition of what is learned in such a way that it commands more of the hidden potential of nature.

 HOS: 1. What is Science   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Neither will science be understood to be abstract theories such as found in astrophysics or elementary particle physics that are practically beyond understanding by anyone outside the few specialists working at the frontiers of these specializations.
Then can science be defined by looking at the range of activities "scientists do." Many of us would be hard-pressed to say much more about the nature of science than that science is whatever it is scientists do for a living.
A descriptive definition was said to be that science is what is "accepted by the scientific community" and is "what scientists do." The obvious implication of this description is that, in a free society, knowledge does not require the imprimatur of legislation in order to become science.

 The Tom Bearden Website
Science had the courage to publish the peer-reviewed results of a tabletop sonoluminescence experiment that apparently produces nuclear reactions.
This action by Science is a shining beacon to remind the scientific community that science is based on experimental method, and that prevailing theories cannot refute new experiments that contradict them.
Also, in response to the Science editorial by Editor Emeritus Philip Abelson, urging government action to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, the real cause for such dependence is a serious error perpetuated by the scientific community now for decades, but seldom mentioned or discussed.

 WHAT IS SCIENCE ?
If you want to understand, if you want to come to a picture of what science is, what knowledge is, it could be a good start to try to become clear about the general content of the concept.
The historian of science Northrop also distinguishes, but from a somewhat different perspective, between a "functionalistic" (aristotelian) and a "physicalistic" theory of nature as two of three basic theories of nature during the period of greek science (ref by Törnebohm 1977).
The other, termed "science ideal", refers to that science, which within a paradigm is considered to be the best expression/reflexion of what science "is" and should be.

 Brazil Imperial Science
The "imperial science" period lasted from 1808, when the seat of the Portuguese crown moved to Rio de Janeiro because of the Napoleonic Wars, until the beginning of the republican period in 1889.
The first higher education schools--a military academy in Rio de Janeiro, two medical schools, and two law schools--were created in the first years of the "imperial science" period, and a few scientific institutions started to appear.
The kind of science being developed in Brazil in those years, although similar to that being developed in Europe, was not subject to the same standards of quality as its European model.

 "WHAT IS SCIENCE?"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Especially when you try to come closer to an understanding of what "an anthroposophically fertilized art of healing" could mean, but also "anthroposophical natural science" in general, it becomes important to become clear about the different aspects of the concept and the problems with which it is connected.
They are: a definite picture of the world, a specific concept of what science is, a special ideal of science, a number of aesthetic ideals, a certain ethic and also a certain "self perspective"; an opinion of the role of the researcher in research (Törnebohm 1974, Wallén 1974, Lindström 1974).
The other, termed "science ideal", refers to that science, which within a paradigm is considered to be the best expression/reflection of what science "is" and should be.

 From genomics to the clinic: the challenge for molecular science?
The theme that emerges is that molecular-scale science will play an important role in the advancement of many of the pharmaceutical science disciplines and is essential for the future of health care.
Such is the pace of these developments that it is a far from fanciful idea that patients could visit their local hospital or pharmacy for rapid analysis of drug levels or genetic markers to establish their ability to metabolise a particular drug or to identify an appropriate course of therapy.
Such nano-scale bioscience is an interesting mix of cell biology, material science and nanotechnology, and is a key feature of novel cell engineering strategies in the development of polymer scaffolds for tissue engineering applications such as nerve regeneration and whole organ creation in the laboratory.

 Women in Science
Note, however, that women have been involved in science in many different ways, not just as laboratory or field scientists, but also in other roles such as translators and writers whose influence was very significant at a particular time.
A study of their lives and their different roles is a good way to gain insights into wider aspects of 'doing science' and into the social contexts in which it has been pursued.
One of these is 'Women in Science', beginning with Hypatia of Alexandria and women are well represented in the other chapters also.

Absolute URLs contain a great deal of information which may already be known from the context of the base document's retrieval, including the scheme, network location, and parts of the URL path.
However, there is enough uniformity in the use of URLs to allow a parser to resolve relative URLs based upon a single, generic-RL syntax.
Step 4: If the embedded URL path is preceded by a slash "/", the path is not relative and we skip to Step 7.
