An Interdisciplinary Course on the Significance of Science by William Rife( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A course, called Nature of Science, is described as developed over the eight years it has been presented to nonscience majors at a liberal arts college. The aims of the course are to show important ties between science and those disciplines in which nonscience students' primary interests lie; to develop in nonscience students the recognition that an intelligent perspective on science will be an essential part of their thinking; and to introduce them to works about science which can serve as prototypes for a continuing nonprofessional interest in science. The structure of the course is in two parts, each running for one ten-week term. Details of class meetings, scheduling, prerequisites, and participant characteristics are presented. The content, about 40% science and 60% about science, is based on course materials listed in an attached bibliography. Criteria for book selection and a sequence of presentation of course content is outlined. The first major topic is the Copernican Revolution, the second the Darwinian-Mendelian Revolution, and the third behaviorism. Procedures for examinations and grading are presented, and the promotion of a worldview by the teacher is discussed. Ratings from students evaluation forms indicate uniform commendation. (Author/KSM)
