Written to explore how we might improve science literacy among future citizens - & generally how we can foster a more humane, globally oriented society - given the technological democracy in which most of us live, this book addresses topics such as the importance of transdisciplinarity in science education, the role of science centers in improving science literacy, & the importance of creating an "empathetic science." Seeking innovative approaches to science & education through interdisciplinary cross talk & a suite of new ideas, a score of wise men & women, hailing from different backgrounds & disciplines - scientists, educators, philosophers, diplomats, futurists, theologians, Nobel laureates, businessmen, & high school teachers - have come together in the creation of this thought-provoking book on science education, present & future. Selected Contents: Towards a Scienceless Society? * The Neglected, But Not Negligible, Responsibility of Science to Society & to Future Generations * Cosmological Education for Future Generations * Tolstoy, Napoleon & Gompers * The Thirteenth Labor of Hercules * Confronting Complexity: A New Meaning to World Literacy * Science Literacy for the 21st Century
