  Course Description
This course will explore the ways that science is a social phenomenon which is laden with issues of power and culture, but which can also tell us a lot about the world around us. It will cover the history of scientific thinking, from the scientific revolution and Darwinism to current scientific methodologies, as well as contemporary topics in science such as nuclear development, genetic editing and tensions between local ecological knowledge and Western conceptions of science.
