Definition of science || Comparative Social System

Definition of science:

The word Science comes from the Latin word "Scientia" meaning "knowledge" and in the broadest sense it is any systematic knowledge-base or prescriptive practice being capable of resulting in prediction. This is why science is termed as a highly-skilled technique or practice.

However, in more contemporary terms, science is a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific process or method in order to organize a body of knowledge gained through research.

Science remains a continuing effort on the part of a human being to discover and increase knowledge through research. Scientist make observations record measurable data related to their observations, analyze the information in hand in order to construct theoretical explanations of the phenomenon involved.

Science is a particular branch of knowledge. According to the science council,

"Science is the pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence.“

Science is a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws.

Science is a systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.

According to the James Porter,

“Fiction is about the suspension of disbelief; science is about the suspension of belief”.
