Science, originally intended to conquer and harness the forces of nature for the good of man, is looked upon by some as the chief cause of the suffering of humanity today.
On’the other hand, there are a good many people who consider science to be the harbinger of all progress, prosperity and comfort.
A lot of determination and observation are required.
Civilization, as it is today, also came from numerous discoveries that were made in the field of Science.
The contro¬versy has been raging for a long time, though science goes on taking long strides .obviously regardless of the conflicting opinions pro¬nounced on its achievements.
Leaders of thought, be they scientists or not, however, occasi¬onally pause and ponder whether science is going the right way and really promoting human welfare.Electricity is a main source of energy has revolutionized the Earth.Science has made medical field enough advanced that today the average life of a human being has raised to 90 years.So, it is very easy to conclude that Science is beneficial for mankind. Destructive weapons like guns, rifles, atom bombs etc. It is science that gave us different types of power like electric power and nuclear power.If all these powers and weapons are not used in a negative way, there is nothing to fear.To decide that whether science is a boon or a bane for mankind is not a simple decision.We should first look for the exact meaning of science.The position, however, changes materially in regard to the application of scientific research in the field of practi¬cal activity.Science is like a sharp sword which can be used for either defending yourself against the enemy or cutting your own throat.A dispassionate and comprehen¬sive survey of the fruits of scientific advance in the various spheres of human life provides sufficient ground to be sceptical about the claim that science is an unqualified and unmixed blessing to huma¬nity.They have reason to conclude that all is not well with science and its application.
