Technology vs. Science

Science and technology are defined as

Science is a system of acquiring knowledge based on the scientific method and the organized body of knowledge gained through such inquiry, derived from the Latin Scientia (inside). To distinguish it from applied science, which is the application of scientific knowledge to specific human needs, science as described here is sometimes referred to as pure science.

Technology is a broad term that refers to a species’ use and understanding of tools and crafts and how this influences its ability to govern and adapt to its surroundings. It is a result of science and engineering in human society, even though some technological breakthroughs precede the two concepts.

Science is a method for getting knowledge, and this system describes and explains natural phenomena through observation and experimentation. The term “science” also refers to the organized body of information that individuals have accumulated through that system.

Science is divided into two categories: theoretical and practical.

Natural sciences are concerned with natural phenomena (such as biological life), whereas social sciences are concerned with human behavior and societies.

These classifications are empirical sciences, which means that the knowledge must be founded on observable phenomena and able to be checked for validity by other researchers working in similar circumstances.

Etymological Differences

The word science derives from the Old French word Scientia, derived from the Latin word Scientia, which is derived from scio, which means ‘I know.’ Science, or scientia, was a term from the Middle Ages until the Enlightenment to describe any orderly documented knowledge. As a result, science took on the same broad definition as philosophy at the time. The science word has the same meaning in several languages, including French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. Today, the term “science” is commonly used to refer to empirical research that employs the scientific method.

Technology is derived from the Greek words “technology”, “o” — “techne”, “” (“craft”), and “logia”, “” (“logic”) (“saying”). However, a precise definition is difficult to come by; “technology” might refer to material objects that humans use, such as machinery, hardware, or utensils, but it can also relate to broader topics, such as systems and organizational methods, and procedures. “Construction technology,” “medical technology,” and “state-of-the-art technology” are examples of terms that can be used broadly or in specialized fields.

Is there a link between science and technology?

Bigelow’s phrase[1] “the practical uses of science” alludes to the source of much of today’s technological ambiguity. Using this metaphor to characterize technology, he effectively subsumed it under the cover of science to the point where, as Rose put it, science and technology are now perceived as an “indivisible couple,” with technology serving as the subordinate and dependent partner. As a result, for the most part, the two are bundled together as a single conceptual package known simply as “science.” This topic is emphasized when looking for technology-related teaching resources on the Internet. Sites dedicated to scientific education have a wealth of lesson plans. The issue is that many of these teachings should be classified as “technology,” yet they are frequently referred to as “Applied Science.”
