John Malloy BMZ115EK – Nature of Science Tzvia Cuperman November 15, 2010 Nature of Science We have used several aspects of nature numerous times this semester, but there are two that really stuck out to me. The collection and use of empirical data seems to be one of the most critical aspects of nature. Without data, there is nothing but opinion and speculation. For this reason, it, in my opinion, is probably the most crucial aspect of science, closely followed by creativity. Scientists are constantly developing new methods to conduct new experiments to test new hypotheses. There is simply no way to completely test different hypotheses by using the same method. If that were the case, we would most likely have a much greater understanding of the world around us. Since it is not, though, we have to constantly be creative in our efforts to learn about the world around us. In these manners, the collection and use of empirical data and the constant creativity of scientists seem to be two of the most crucial aspects of science. Throughout this semester, we collected ample amounts of data on varying topics.
