This course introduces students to important issues, historical and contemporary, related to science and technology from a variety of social, political, and philosophical viewpoints.

The scientific and technological way of thinking will become clear through historical examples, helping us to consider important issues of science and technology policy, such as how science and technology can be used to benefit society and how one can foster innovation in a society or an organization.
