The role of race and gender in science is a complex, multi-faceted subject that lends itself to a number of approaches and interpretations.
These guidelines are appropriate not only for introductory courses in the history of science, but also where such courses are not always an option, as a way to establish a history of science component within courses in general science, history, and social studies.
Science was not considered a suitable career path for women, however, and her parents persuaded her to prepare herself to teach French.

 CHRISTIAN SCIENCE - LoveToKnow Article on CHRISTIAN SCIENCE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
The progress of the cult of Christian Science has been remarkable, and by the beginning of the 20th century many hundreds of Christian Science churches had been established; and the new religion found many adherents also in England.
The theosophic and the medical aspects of Chriitian Science may perhaps be distinguished; the latter at all events is open to grave abuse.
In 19o8, indeed, a separate movement (Emmanuel), inspired by the success of Christian Science, and also emanating from America, was started within the Anglican Communion, its object being to bring prayer to work on the curing of disease; and this movement obtained the approval of many leaders of the church in England.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Science and the Church
The words "science" and "Church" are here understood in the following sense: Science is not taken in the restricted meaning of natural sciences, but in the general one given to the word by Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas.
Church, in connexion with science, theoretically means any Church that claims authority in matters of doctrine and teaching; practically, however, only the Catholic Church is in question, on account of her universality and her claim of power to exercise this authority.
The greatest obstacle to anti-Christian science is the Church, which claims Divine origin, authority to teach infallible truth, maintains the inspiration of Scripture, and is confident of her own existence to the end of the 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.

 The Progress of Science (1887)
The burden of Bacon's pleadings for science is the "gathering of fruit"–the importance of winning solid material advantages by the investigation of Nature and the desirableness of limiting the application of scientific methods of inquiry to that field.
It has become obvious that the interests of science and of industry are identical; that science cannot make a step forward without, sooner or later, opening up new channels for industry; and, on the other hand, that every advance of industry facilitates those experimental investigations, upon which the growth of science depends.
Physical science has thus been brought into the closest relation with history and with archæology; and the striking investigations which, during our time, have put beyond doubt the vast antiquity of Babylonian and Egyptian civilisation, are in perfect harmony with the conclusions of anthropology as to the antiquity of the human species.

 Arthur O. Lovejoy: The Argument for Organic Evolution Before The Origin of Species I   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
First, the science of geology had gone through a brilliant development, and had fought and won its battle against religious orthodoxy; and in England, though not all geologists were consistent uniformitarians, all geology had been profoundly influenced by the principles and the methods of Hutton and Lyell.
The basis of the doctrine of evolution consists, not in an experimental demonstration—for the subject is hardly accessible to this mode of proof—but in its general harmony with scientific thought.
When, in these separate sciences, the subsidiary generalizations underlying the theory of the transformation of species were well established, and generally accepted by specialists, the evidence for evolution must be said to have been logically complete.

Patterson’s contact with that which she was later to uncover as being not the Principle of spiritual healing itself, but the subtle counterfeit of the same, as the application of human willpower, instead of the realization or recognition of the truth of being about God, man, and the universe.
In that year also was made the first beginning of a Christian Science church, when a number of her students united in inviting her to hold meetings and preach to them every Sunday, and subscribed a weekly salary for her.
The beginning of a Christian Science church made in 1875 had not survived the disaffection of some of her students, but in 1876 the Christian Scientist Association was formed, which fulfilled the needs of the times.

Article 109 in particular provides that when a law of a state is inconsistent with the law of the Commonwealth, the latter shall prevail, and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be infalid, thus paving the way for the ultimate consolidation of the federal power.
Much has been written on the science of the state, or, as we prefer, in Anglo-Saxon lands, to call it, political science.
Anglo-Saxon institutions are following their independent development, and if the influence of foreign institutions is felt at all, it is probably that of the clear logical detail and cohesion of French institutions.

 Introductory Science Primer (1887)
The method of observation and experiment by which such great results are obtained in science, is identically the same as that which is employed by every one, every day of his life, but refined and rendered precise.
But as a preliminary to the study of that science, it may be useful to consider some simple cases of composition and decomposition which are exemplified by water.
And we are thus led to the science of chemistry, which tells us exactly how bodies combine, what comes of their combination, and how compounds may be separated into their constituents.

 • 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.

But, upon page 140, Science Gossip, 1887, is an account of "a large, smooth, waterworn, gritty sandstone pebble" that had been found in the wood of a full-grown beech tree.
The writer who tells us this, with the usual exclusion-imagination, known as stupidity, but unjustly, because there is no real stupidity, thinks he can think of a good-sized stone that had for many years been in a cultivated field, but that had never been seen before -- had never interfered with plowing, for instance.

Science has taken a wrong turn in 1887 when Albert A. Michelson and Edward W. Morley conducted a famous experiment, called the Michelson-Morley Experiment.
Another ‘goof’ in science is that since ether didn’t exist (Michelson-Morley experiment interpretation) is that this pesky term in Maxwell’s equations could be fudged – or assumed to be zero.
It means that science has missed the fact of existence of this term.

This course discusses readings, 1800-the present, from works of literature and of science that share a common concern with scientific topics, that is, texts from imaginative genres (poetry, plays, short stories, science fiction) and from scientific ones (the treatise, popular science reporting, travel diary, essay, and the autobiography).
The course groups these topics into seven areas: the history of science and its relation to literature and imaginative thinking, cosmological theories (of everything), geology and evolution, physics and chemistry, genetics, cognitivity, and futurology.

An Introduction to Chemical Science by R.P. Williams, A.M., CONTENTS PREFACE, BY R.P. The object held constantly in view in writing this book has been to prepare a suitable text-book in Chemistry for the average High School,--one that shall be simple, practical, experimental, and inductive, rather than a cyclopaedia of chemical information.
For the benefit of the science and the added interest in the study, it is earnestly recommended that teachers encourage pupils to fit up laboratories of their own at home.
While endeavoring, by securing an able corps of critics, and in all other ways possible, to reduce errors to a minimum, the author disclaims any pretensions to a work entirely free from mistakes, holding himself alone responsible for any shortcomings, and trusting to the leniency of teachers and critics.
