Scientific Thought in Context is a comprehensive guide to the history of science and serves as an authoritative bridge between science content and social issues. Cross-curricular in nature, Scientific Thought in Context supports both basic and advanced curriculums in biology, chemistry, general physical science, physics, and Earth science as well as history and the social sciences. It brings together original essays written by leading experts in the field, primary source documents that articulate the interrelation of science and society, and sidebars on the cultural, economic, and political issues surrounding scientific thought -- providing insights on leading social issues and spurring critical thinking about the impact of science on society through the ages.
"While the primary audience is older high school/younger college students, literate and/or curious adults will profit from these pages, which go far to help readers make sense of how we came to know what we know about our world and ourselves. Strongly recommended for all public and academic libraries."
