Reflections on Scientific Literacy, Worldviews, and Education

  • David L. Stocum IUPUI
Keywords: Civic Literacy, Science Literacy, Public Policy

Abstract

Science is at the core of many of the political, social, and economic issues that dominate modern society. These issues demand that citizens have a level of scientific literacy sufficient to understand the science on which policy arguments and decisions need to be based. Scientific literacy is also vital to maintaining a workforce increasingly reliant on science, and to link with the humanities in a search for truth to better understand our world as a whole.
