  • Product Description

The monograph is in two parts. In the first part the author examines the nature of scince, its methodology, its limitations, and its application in technology. The author desribes science as a "two-edged sword" which can be used for human welfare and for human destruction, especially through its "misapplication" in the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction. The author argues that it was the Humanities that gave birth to science, and stresses the need for the Humanities to "humanize" and "tame" Science and technology, otherwise they would "grow wild" and turn out to be mankind''s instruments of self- destruction and collective suicide. The author argues that science is based on metaphysics, a fact which(he maintains)is supported by modern quantum physics with its discovery of the sub-atomic particles which, by their nature, are immaterial elements. Thus modern quantum physics, he argues, supports the idealist view of the world, and the idealist contention that the primary category of the material world is spirit, not matter. In the second part the author examines the nature and methodology of the social sciences
