Thomas Kuhn Institute
The Thomas Kuhn Institute examines science from the perspective of how science discovers the world. From global warming to gene technologies; cyber-relationships to religion and politics; science and technology settle change and help us recognize society and our role in it. The Institute gathers teaching and research, while seeking to connect the two cultures of sciences and humanities in the history of science and medicine, the philosophy of science, the social studies of science and technology, Social Theory and Computer Applications. Since science and technology contain an essential place in modern life, thinking in a systematic, critical way will help us comprehend scientific knowledge and its applications. While most of us are not professionally qualified to maneuver scientific knowledge independently, we can still obtain a form of scientific and technical knowledge that will help us recognize the nature of science and its usage in society.
