TOK #2

KQ: In what way does disagreement promote scientific progress?

I think disagreement is a key element in scientific progress. It helps scientists to reach further and look at things differently. But when the disagreement happens between scientists and “civilians” things might get a little tricky. There’s ethics involved, and that on one side can stop progress or slow it down. Although on the other side, again, it can make scientists look at things differently and hopefully find better ways of making progress.

    It certainly does. In your next post try and include some specific examples to illustrate what you are thinking about. And, see if you can think of some of the language of TOK to use. Keep blogging, I enjoy reading them and getting the opportunity to comment.
