Science, is it enough ?


On scientific methodology, by Sergio Frasca

Outline

Roger Bacon in XIII century clairvoyed the development of modern science as the interaction between experiment and mathematics. This idea flowerished only after more than three centuries with the works of Galilei, Huygens, Newton and than the stream of men that have build the Phisics and the modern world.
Another big leap was the evolutionary ideas of Lamark and then of Darwin. In that case the role of mathematics and experiment was not central (at least at beginning), but the capacity of ordering a big amount of observational data.
