How Science Works

22 February 2018

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.


Official classes are held each week on Fridays at 9:00 at the Meeting Room of the Molecular Biology and Genetics Department. Feel free to come.

Here you find the slides that have been used in classes.


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

  • Logic, Set Theory (two sides of the same coin)
  • Concepts of Probabilities and Statistics
  • Networks and Graphs (for molecular biology)
