Summary
"The role of science, along with its nature and development, are commonly misunderstood. Fernando Espinoza shines light on these misconceptions to show that the role of science also lies in its effect and influence upon society through historical, philosophical, and sociological perspectives. This book incorporates the mandates by national organizations such as the National Research Council and National Science Teachers Association and is a useful text for required courses of general education majors"--
