Thinking about what we know and how we come to know it is critically important to understanding social work values, beliefs, and practices. This means critically thinking about the sources and types of knowledge on which social workers rely, and the implications of relying on these different sources and types of knowledge. The study of knowledge and knowing about the world around us called epistemology , and represents one of the major branches of philosophy. Throughout much of human history, philosophers have dedicated a great deal of thought to understanding knowledge and its role in the human experience. Ancient Greek and western philosophers like Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, as well as those who came before and after them, made lasting contributions to the way we think about knowledge and its applications in daily life.

NOS is derived not only from the eight science practices delineated in the Framework for K—12 Science Education , but also from decades of research supporting the various forms of systematic gathering of information through direct and indirect observations of the natural world and the testing of this information by the various research methods used in science, such as descriptive, correlational, and experimental designs. All science educators and those involved with science teaching and learning should have a shared accurate view of nature of scientific knowledge, and recognize that NOS should be taught explicitly alongside science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts. It demonstrated the common conflation of how scientific knowledge is developed and its characteristics. This would clarify the difference between how knowledge is developed from the characteristics of the resulting knowledge. However, introducing a new label i.
Over the course of human history, people have developed many interconnected and validated ideas about the physical, biological, psychological, and social worlds. Those ideas have enabled successive generations to achieve an increasingly comprehensive and reliable understanding of the human species and its environment. The means used to develop these ideas are particular ways of observing, thinking, experimenting, and validating. These ways represent a fundamental aspect of the nature of science and reflect how science tends to differ from other modes of knowing. It is the union of science, mathematics, and technology that forms the scientific endeavor and that makes it so successful.
Science from the Latin word scientia , meaning "knowledge"  is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. Modern science is typically divided into three major branches that consist of the natural sciences e. There is disagreement,    however, on whether the formal sciences actually constitute a science as they do not rely on empirical evidence. Science is based on research , which is commonly conducted by scientists working in academic and research institutions , government agencies , and companies. The practical impact of scientific research has led to the emergence of science policies that seek to influence the scientific enterprise by prioritizing the development of commercial products , armaments , health care , public infrastructure , and environmental protection.

Разница, - бормотал он себе под нос. - Разница между U235 и U238. Должно быть что-то самое простое. Техник в оперативном штабе начал отсчет: - Пять. Четыре.
Задние колеса уже остались за спиной - огромные, доходящие ему до плеч скаты, вращающиеся все быстрее и быстрее. Беккер рванулся к двери, рука его опустилась мимо поручня, и он чуть не упал. Еще одно усилие.
