Simply put, science is a framework for inquiry that generates knowledge about the natural world. Science is an incredibly powerful tool that has provided us with a profound understanding of the natural world. There are, however, limits to science…For many, the word science conjures up a variety of images: white mice, lab coats, glass beakers, Bunsen burners, and the like. While science often involves these things, the field of science is incredibly diverse and includes a dizzying array of approaches. Unfortunately, most scientists remain so involved with their day-to-day work that they don’t take time to advance a better public understanding of their work. As a result, many non-scientists have a weak grasp of what science really is. Sadly, much criticism of science comes from those who do not understand it.
