HIST-1605A History of Science

Scientific knowledge and technological development have played a key role in the creation of the modern world and any attempt to study and understand history, culture, economy and the society in general, must incorporate in its analysis the social processes triggering scientific and technologic change. Similarly, for a true assessment of scientific development, it is necessary to offer a historical perspective that permits the understanding of social and cultural contexts rendering possible the development of technology and scientific savoir faîre. This program intends to provide the students, both from social and natural sciences, with a general introduction to some of the most important inquiries and debates of social surveys conducted in the fields of science and technology.
