History of science

The history of science and the history of man coincide in an amazing way – new scientific discoveries almost always resulted from the need of the moment and the need to improve certain daily work. But very often not only appropriate manual or intellectual abilities were needed to discover new rules – according to most philosophers, curiosity in a human being was important, which until now forces him to continue to search for new questions and not to be satisfied with the existing state of affairs – to its creation and changing, to cross the next borders. It is this curiosity of the world and the ability to constantly pose new questions that underlies the scientific knowledge that has been accumulated and proven throughout human civilization. However, what is very important for the whole process and the Encyclopedia that have been created to this day – many things considered even two years ago as absolutely certain and proven, today hates even the least criticism and was considered a total absurdity from the past. If encyclopaedias were written down in the Middle Ages, the slogans and definitions contained therein would certainly not withstand the test of time – at that time, the scientific knowledge possessed suggested that the earth is at the center of the universe, and the sun with other planets is running around the planet. Just as it sounds ridiculous today, so too our current beliefs about verifiable and falsifiable scientific knowledge in a given area can be ridiculed and completely turned over for one hundred, two hundred or five hundred years.


Science as such is very trying to be objective and falsifiable. And that means that after describing a process or material or factual state, its reproduction by other scientists with the same tools – will be possible. The falsifiability of a given scientific proof is mainly based on the fact that it is possible to work out a specific method or a thesis standing in the counter and proving the complete opposite of a given result. If it is developed by undermining the results of a given study, then such attempts to refute the thesis with available means will be carried out and the same result will still be obtained – the result of a given study can be considered as verified. For the greatest scientific radicalists, however, it is still too small evidence to consider certain theses as 100% certain. There is no certainty that after a million-dollar test giving the same effect, the million and first will not be the breakthrough, which will completely destroy all previous assumptions.

This changeability of science and its susceptibility to denying its own achievements, however, can not stand in the way of creating new encyclopedias and spreading them among the global society. Of course, in today’s reality, publishing thousands of pages in different languages and distributing them – completely misses the goal. Fortunately, another great invention of humanity comes to the rescue, the description of which in the encyclopedia would certainly occupy a dozen or so pages – the Internet. At present, practically all proven and tested and overthrown scientific knowledge developed by man over the course of time is available from the digital version for anyone who has the ambition to learn something. The only thing to keep in mind when copying data contained in such internet portals and digital extraterrestrials – is the ability to edit these entries by complete amateurs without due competence. When we check only one Internet scientific source, we can get quite simple or even manipulative and take a lie for the fact.
