Science
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. Contemporary science is typically subdivided into the natural sciences which study the material world, the social sciences which study people and societies, and the formal sciences like mathematics. Because the formal sciences do not depend on empirical observations, some consider formal sciences like mathematics to be not science, while others do consider the formal sciences to be part of science, but different from the empirical sciences. Disciplines which use science like engineering and medicine may also be considered to be applied sciences. Science is related to research, and is normally organized by a university, a college, or a research institute.
