SINC 120 - Science and Human Values
This seminar introduces students to scientific knowledge and how it relates to individual values and the value systems of our society. The sciences, like the humanities and social sciences, provide ways of understanding about ourselves and the world in which we live. The changes in our understanding of reality brought about by scientific revolutions provide topics for exploration. Other topics include: how science affects our lives; some of the theories and methods of science; the excitement of scientific discovery; and ways in which a scientifically literate public can affect the nature of research to benefit human life.
This course is only open to students in the B.A. Liberal Arts and Sciences program.
