科学はどう、私たちの世界観を変えるか(尾関)

How will science change the way we view the world? (Ozeki)

Content

科学研究の意義は、それが世の中に役立つか、それとも人々の知的好奇心を満たすか、という視点が論じられがちだ。だが、もう一つある。もっと深いところで私たちの世界観にかかわっているということだ。20世紀の原子核・素粒子論、環境保護のエコロジーから、先端医療をめぐる生命倫理から、その事例を紡ぐ。

The meaning of scientific studies is usually discussed from two viewpoints, social usefulness and intellectual curiosity. However, did you realize that there is also another viewpoint? Science is in truth deeply related to how we view the world we live in. Cases where such relationships of science and world perception are found will be introduced from the fields of nuclear physics and particle physics of the 20th century, ecology and its link with environmental protection, and bioethics within advanced medicine.
