History of mankind shows that progress of science has been accompanied by debate and discourse and since the advent of the Copernican revolution, experimentation has become an indispensable component of modern science. In this booklet, some important components and dimensions of scientific reason are introduced to the reader. It is shown that in science the processes of experiment, observation and inference have to be linked with the process of enquiry and reasoning.
These ideas are illustrated with examples from the history of science and give the reader a lead into the realm of science and reason.
This booklet is a part of a series, brought out by the AIPSN, on the occasion of its Sabka Desh Hamara Desh programme.
