Minimum Science for Everybody


About the Book

What does science mean to a farmer, a cobbler, an accountant or a housewife? Do they really need to know the chemical formula of water or the function of ribosomes? What should be the minimum curriculum of science for everyone? Is forgetting all cultural beliefs and practices developed over centuries a prerequisite to learn science? Should science teach us to overcome and win over nature or is it about understanding natural phenomena to live with nature?

This book ponders over these questions and provides an insight for the policy makers, planners and implementers of Education, Agriculture, Health and Skills Development as they have to cultivate Scientific Temperament, Sustain Nature, Immunity and Prosperity for all.
