English to Greek translations [PRO] Science
English term or phrase:Science Wars
It is, in fact, possible to see the Science Wars as a conflict about the cultural meaning
Explanation: Logic and Science agree with each other as they can verify if something is false or true.
Abstract meenings cannot be verified easily, therefore, there is a natural conflict between them and Science.
The truth I suppose is somewhere in the middle.
Explanation: polemos / epanastasi tis epistimis.
Science fights for its establishment not only for achieving a better way to live, but also for introducing a new way of thinking based on facts and causes. It strives to attribute a new meaning to the human culture.
Scientific thought is promoted through revolution against the established cosmogonic perception ofthe world (myths, religious dogmas etc)
