  science. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Mathematics, while not a science, is closely allied to the sciences because of their extensive use of it.
The physical sciences include physics, chemistry, and astronomy; the earth sciences (sometimes considered a part of the physical sciences) include geology, paleontology, oceanography, and meteorology; and the life sciences include all the branches of biology such as botany, zoology, genetics, and medicine.
Science, in the modern sense of the term, came into being in the 16th and 17th cent., with the merging of the craft tradition with scientific theory and the evolution of the scientific method.

 Christian Science
The fact that Christian Science has stirred the ire of those who are reluctant to change their minds and of those who never change their minds is not so much to be wondered at.
The entire structure of Christian Science rests consistently on this basis, and it necessarily repudiates all assumption that the deific nature includes any evil or necessity for the employment of evil in order to be God and to govern His kingdom.
Christian Science pleads for the recognition of the scientific nature of his knowledge and purpose, the scientific nature of his analyses and teaching, and the lawful nature of his modus operandi.

 Science Publishing
There are two main ways in which publishing affected the sciences: firstly, in the communication of discoveries and new results within the scientific community; and secondly, in the discussion of science and nature among the general public.
Publishers were thus crucial to the developing professionalisation of the sciences (by providing places to publish results) but also, and perhaps even more significantly, in increasing the public awareness and understanding of the sciences.
The end result was that the sciences in the late nineteenth century had achieved a level of cultural authority undreamt of in the early years of the century.

 Brown/Making Truth: Metaphor in Science. Chapter 9   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
This is not an unusual phenomenon in science, particularly when predictions are based on complex models that are sensitive to the particular assumptions that go into their formulations.
In dealing with problems characterized by complexity and uncertainties, the physical and natural sciences are not fundamentally different in character from the social sciences in their approaches to model building and interpretation.
In the social sciences, however, setting the problem in an appropriate metaphorical context often is a more difficult challenge.

The Babylonians were quite knowledgeable in a number of areas of science: their knowledge of astronomy was very advanced by even 1500 BC or earlier.
Because modern science distinguishes between subjective and objective and teaches us that objective is “good” and subjective is “bad,” this creates for us an increasingly wide gulf between our perceptions of phenomena and the concepts by which we explain them.

 Science -- Kerr 286 (5446): 1828
The story, as updated in reports in this issue of Science and the 15 December issue of Geophysical Research Letters, tells of an arctic ice pack that is not only shrinking in area but rapidly thinning as well.
The big question now is what's causing the shrinkage: natural polar climate fluctuations or global warming due to increasing levels of greenhouse gases.
In its positive phase, to which it shifted abruptly around 1989, the AO pumps more warm air into the Arctic, tends to warm the water entering the Arctic from the North Atlantic, and blows more thick, multiyear ice out of the Arctic--all changes that should thin the ice.

Since many secondary metabolites are genus- or species-specific, the chances are good to excellent that many plant constituents with potentially useful biological properties remain undiscovered, undeveloped, and unused.
In spite of the advances in extraction technology, separation science (chromatographic techniques), and analytical and spectroscopic instrumentation, we still know little about the secondary metabolism of most of the higher plant species.
