Interdisciplinary Studies in Science, Technology, Philosophy and Culture

 
D P Chattopadhyaya (Author)
Synopsis Science consists of a body of precise statements which can be tested or proved. It may be descriptive, observational, experimental, or classificatory. Statements of exact sciences are measurable in terms of numbers. Technology is intimately related to science. While science is concerned with the human understanding of the objective world, its inherent properties and their interactions, technology and engineering deal with the application of objective knowledge for achieving desired objectives and the tools and techniques for achieving the said objectives. Guided by science, technology and engineering check and contribute to scientific progress and human development. All theoretical and practical enterprises are somehow rooted in the cultural life of humans. The relation and interaction between the natural and the cultural are not only studied but have to be regulated by our needs. The natural/cultural dichotomy, like the causal/rational or the determined/free one, is anomalous. In the essays of this book an attempt has been made to bring out not only the issues of complementarity and conflict between the realms of nature and culture but also within the same. Science, at one level, and philosophy, at another, highlight the characteristics of the valuational and technological discourses. The key to the understanding of all these discourses, the author tries to show, lies in the ways of human life and living. This book will be of interest to natural scientists, social scientists, historians, technologists and philosophers. Scholars as well as the reading public are among the intended audience of this book.
