The Role of Science in Law

Robin Feldman

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights key moments in which science emerges and separates from other types of intellectual inquiry. In particular, it focuses on three periods of history that are critical to the development of the law/science relationship: ancient Greece, the Scientific Revolution in Europe, and 20th-century reevaluations of the meaning of science. In highly simplified form, what we think of as science today begins its history deeply entwined with philosophy and theology.

Keywords:   nature of science, law and science, ancient Greece, Scientific Revolution, philosophy of science, science and technology
