Tutor description

Since classical antiquity science as a type of knowledge was closely linked to philosophy, the way of life dedicated to discovering such knowledge. And into early modern times the two words were sometimes used interchangeably in the English language. By the 17th century,[6] "natural philosophy" (which is today called "natural science") could be considered separately from "philosophy" in general.[7] But "science" continued to also be used in a broad sense denoting reliable knowledge about a topic, in the same way it is still used in modern terms such as library science, political science, and computer science.

Science is a Boon Or BaneScience is bane for world. Because science and technology has not only grabbed us. It has also grabbed the living creature like animals, insects, bees etc. The vibration produced by mobile phone can also kill the bees. Some years after end of honey bee is certain whole human life will also finish. Animals get problems in taking breathe due to harmful gases being produced from industries and factories depend on science and technology. So the science and technology has destroyed the whole environment. From all these comments we can say that although science and technology has great advantage but all are small near its disadvantage. So by seeing its disadvantage we should use it only in necessity, not always which can easily be done by us.Science according to me is definitely a boon.One argument people use to against this is that Science is a threat to human life in many ways which I completely agree but I would say take me to the stone age and I would show how people can kill with stones and sticks. This more of a philosophical topic.Science does have its advantages and disadvantages but if we weigh them the advantages are clearly more.Take dynamite for example it was one of the most useful things ever invented but it was also a deadly weapon in bad hands but clearly the amount people profited was tremendously greater than the incidents which killed people (which are of course bad).So this is completely dependent on the owner of that pie
