Item description for Thirteenth Labor (World Futures General Evolution Studies) by Eric J . Chaisson...
Written to explore how we might improve science literacy among future citizens -- and generally how we can foster a more humane, globally oriented society - given the technological democracy in which most of us live, this book addresses topics such as the importance of transdisciplinarity in science education, the role of science centers in improving science literacy, and the importance of creating an 'empathetic science'. Seeking innovative approaches to science and education through interdisciplinary cross talk and a suite of new ideas, a score of wise men and women, hailing from different backgrounds and disciplines - scientists, educators, philosophers, diplomats, futurists, theologians, Nobel laureates, businessmen, and high school teachers - have come together in the creation of this thought-provoking book on science education, present and future.
