How Science Works

This course was given between February and May 2017.


Do we need to have a Faculty of Sciences? Or is it better to have a shopping mall at Vezneciler Campus? What is the value of Science? In this course we will discuss why do we need Science, how Science improves people’s lives and how to do it better.

There may be some math involved, but only the essential parts, including:
