About this item

This is an undergraduate textbook for non-science majors interested in learning about how science works, the implications of the scientific method on our conception of nature, and the impact we have on the environment. The book provides a concise, historically based, non-mathematical treatment of modern physics of relevance to societal issues. It challenges readers to examine societal issues (and their own beliefs) in light of the scientific method. Finally, unlike typical physics or science texts,Science and Society is structured as a narrative in which the modern scientific conceptualization of nature is developed and applied.
