What Is The Age Of Science?

Age of Science

The age of science is the knowledge revolution of the last four centuries.

The scientific revolution was characterized by four traumatic innovations:

  • Discovery of Truth
    A new method for the discovery of truth, which challenged ancestral tradition and folk wisdom by appeal to experimentation and evidence.
  • Origins
    Overthrow of the basic beliefs that most people cherished concerning the origins and nature of the universe, life, and people.
  • Information & Knowledge
    Never-ending surge of new information and knowledge about the world, which was too relentless and too complex for and single individual to master.
  • New Technologies
    Conceiving and producing of new technologies, which gave to humans the power that formerly belonged only to the gods.
