  Science Quotes - The Quotations Page
Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated.
Science is facts; just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science.
In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.

Merton developed his analysis of the norms and values, cultures and institutions of modern science through his whole career, and specified new norms, counternorms, priority conflicts and specific mechanisms (as the “matthew principle” and the “fallacy of the latest word”).
In an article on sociology of science, Harriet Zuckerman noted that this "seemingly innocent" question has "been controversial for decades." In one of the main streams in contemporary science studies, often with a relativistic bent, it is often argued that Merton confused the ideology of scientists with their practice.
The conference is organized in cooperation between The Seminar in Science Studies at the University of Oslo and The National Committee for Research Ethics in the Social Science and the Humanities (Law and Theology included).

A challenge was issued to the science education community by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) to make the interdependence of science and technology with society a major focus of science education in the decades of the 1980's and 1990's (NSTA, 1982).
Science education should give all students an awareness of the nature and scope of a wide variety of science and technology-related careers open to students of varying aptitudes and interests.
In general terms, the investigators' began with an interest in describing the decision-making used by a secondary science teaching methods professor in attempting to enhance his students' understanding and eventual adoption of a diversified instructional strategy that could be applied to STS instructional themes.

 Science News Online: Jonathan Eberhart (1942—2003)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
A connection between planetary science and his other vocation as a folksinger is the wonderful song he wrote—"Lament for a Red Planet"—featured on his record "Life's Trolley Ride." That record was one of my then-young daughter's favorite music records when she was in grade school.
For me, the tie that he created between the science of space exploration and its music is as valuable and significant as his contribution to the public awareness of space exploration is. Both his prose in Science News and his music tell us all that space is an exciting, dramatic, and very human enterprise.
Science writers are by nature a collegial bunch, and in time we became good friends.

 ACE | History of the GED Tests
While the academic content areas in which candidates are assessed—English language arts (literature/reading), social studies, science, and mathematics—have not changed, the priorities and assumptions by which proficiency in these areas is assessed have evolved.
Since the GED Tests assess academic skills and knowledge typically developed in a four-year program of high school education, it is of utmost importance to the GED Testing Service that the GED Tests continue to evolve as secondary education evolves.
The first generation of tests, developed in 1942, reflected an industrial era, when a high school education was sufficient for many jobs.

 Lord Beveridge
It was a period of tremendous growth for the School, and Beveridge's directorship was responsible for the School's recognition during the 1930s as one of the world's leading social science centres.
In 1944 he became the Liberal MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, and after the loss of his seat in 1945 he served as a Liberal peer in the House of Lords.
Beveridge saw full employment as the pivot of the social welfare programme he expressed in the 1942 Beveridge Report, and Full Employment in a Free Society (1944) expressed how this goal might be gained.

Four months have elapsed in 1942 since Admiral Kolhammer and his ships slipped back through time and met an initial confused and deadly reception.
In California, Kolhammer is in charge of a burgeoning autonomous zone, in essence a 21st-century colony, where science and technology—and culture—are rapidly being disseminated.
One of the strengths of the first book was in the depiction of how each generation of characters found the other to be strange and inscrutable.

 Themes - Tales From The Vault!: Canadian Pulp Fiction, 1940-1952 - Library and Archives Canada
Uncanny Tales featured homegrown tales of supernatural horror, science gone mad and, if the covers were to be believed, giant robots that could crush entire city skylines under their heels.
It is interesting to note that, while Peck praises Uncanny Tales for its part in the ascendance of Canadian science fiction and fantasy, he does so by comparing it to the "fandom" scene in the United States.
It seems that the question of the "Canadian identity" was as much a topic of debate in 1942 as it is today, and that the tactic of defining Canada in contrast to the character of the United States was as popular then as now.
