How Science Emerged

By Gerard Francis

How would explain the phenomenon of life around you? How would you explain the technology that you make use of? How will you explain the equipments you use in your everyday life? If you were to answer in just one word to all the questions asked above what would be your answer? You are right. The answer would be ‘science’. Everything starting from life to living is covered under the science of biology. All the tools you make use of in your daily life, all the machines etc are covered under physics, another branch of science. You increasingly make use of numbers and figures, which is covered under mathematics. Meanwhile, all the food you eat and other drinks you drink are covered under the branch of chemistry. In short, almost everything you do and around you are because of science. Throughout these several years of development of science, a new derivative of science has come into being. It is called technology. Meanwhile, science itself was derived form a Latin word ‘scientia’.

The History of science can be dated back to as far as the B.C or Before Christ period, where there existed great philosophers like Aristotle, Theophrastus and others. The major part of the ancient science period consisted of many personalities from Greece. It was considered to be the temple of knowledge. This trend slowly started subsiding and the concept of science started spreading. Many countries like India also had its fair share of philosophers and scientific inventions through the form of Aryabhatta and others. But, this was not advocated widely as the means of communication between the countries were not established.

It was only after sixteenth century that scientific revolution started taking place. Most of the modern day discoveries were made during this period. Some of the geniuses like Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Thomas Alva Edison, and Charles Darwin etc were born during this period. It was only during this period that Law of gravity, Theory of relativity, Invention of electric bulb and Theory of Evolution came into existence. These were the first milestones towards the modern day science and technology. Without forefathers like those mentioned above, the present day’s science would have been completely impossible.

Amongst all, Einstein is considered as the greatest of all. His theories of relativity, wave-particle duality and several others made for the major breakthroughs in the field of physics. While he faced a lot of flak from the scientists of his time who found it difficult to believe in his theories, modern day scientists better realized the importance of his discoveries. For his contribution in the field of science, Einstein was also awarded with a Nobel Prize.

Another of the greatest scientific discoveries happens to be that of electric bulb invented by Thomas Alva Edison. It was after trying for years using different filaments made up of various elements did Elva come up with the right filament to be used in an electric bulb. Despite the fact that years have passed, electric bulbs are still used and several people all across the world benefit from this great invention. These were just a few examples of the wonders that science has created. Even today, despite the fact that man has come a long way from those initial years, Science still offers a lot of mysteries to mankind. Science truly is the gist of all existence.
