INT552: Science Technology Profit in Societies

In this course we will examine the interrelation of science and social progress.

In this course we will examine the interrelation of science and social progress. As we will see, legal and governing systems are inextricably linked to scientific progress, and science is a catalyst for social change. Profit and fortune seeking is a common denominator to both. We will examine cases of this relation in a wide range of time and places: from Mesopotamia to Silicon Valley. It is hoped that this survey of ideas and events will serve the students as a springboard for thought and action when in college and later in their working lives.
