Science is uniquely distinguished from other human practices: it is the only activity in which the constraints of reality have brought to the quest for deep answers an effective consensus across all the variations that in other respects divide the human species.
Science is built upon facts, as a house is built of stones; but an accumulation of facts is no more a science that a heap of stones is a house.
Science is based on experiment, on a willingness to challenge old dogma, on an openness to see the universe as it really is. Accordingly, science sometimes requires courage at the very least the courage to question the conventional wisdom.

 Stehr: The Salt of Social Science
The search for knowledge in both the natural and the social sciences has, invariably been justified in terms of practical reasons which have included prominently the improvement of basic existential conditions of human life and the emancipation of society from the irrational forces of particular forms of social conduct as well as natural forces.
The current and perhaps widespread feeling of a profound malaise affecting social science, and the premature conviction among some that social science has been largely impotent in practice, is not only, but surely also, linked to a specific image of the ways in which social science knowledge becomes a powerful medium in society.
Whatever one may think of Schelsky's notion of a new kind of class struggle, at least he is sensitive to the reciprocal transformation of society and social science while Scott and Shore chose to treat the realm of politics in the context of their analysis as a constant.

1865 Gregor Mendel, a curious Austrian monk, publishes a study showing how living things-he was working with pea plants at the time-inherit physical characteristics from their parents and pass them along to their offspring.
Cross short plants with short plants, for example, and the resulting crop will be (you guessed it) short.
Incidentally, scientists believe that Brother Gregor-though he really did unravel the laws of inheritance-may have fudged his data a bit to make the pattern he found "cleaner." In real life, data never come out that good.

Another of Himes’s major contributions to the science program at Dickinson College was his support for the construction of a science building.
This meant that there were now three science professors at the college, and caused a division of the Natural Science department.
Additionally, each one was hired after there were already three science professors at the school, and there was no point before 1899 when there were ever more than three science professors at one time.

For the truly remarkable thing about the growth of modern science is that it took place in a Christian civilisation, recently liberated from the shackles of authoritarianism by the Renaissance and the Reformation.
On the negative side, since science lends no support to the belief in God or immortality, these beliefs must be discarded, according to Russell, who prides himself on being the first to have introduced a really scientific philosophy.
Fundamentally, science is concerned with description, and religion with encounter: science is concerned with the material aspect of things, but religion belongs to the world of personal relationships with the emphasis on the aspect of mind.

Included are an examination of cloaking devices for aircraft, mind-control technologies, and teleportation achieved in the lab.
Perhaps the most compelling argument to support these cases lies in the startling and controversial new science of transgenics that actually allows for the creation of alien/human beings.
