Sample text

The history of the progress of mankind is a history of new knowledge acquired and natural phenomena understood. Unfortunately, till some 50 years ago, this knowledge and understanding was confined to a small number of people— to a class which used this knowledge and understanding to exploit the vast majority for the gain of the individual members of the class. Scientific temper amongst our people would act as a strong deterrent to such exploitation. Scientific temper could lead to a better appreciation of the impact of science and technology on society, and thereby provide the kind of atmosphere needed for science and technology to flourish and for their importance to be duly recognized.

Occupation/Profession ............. Address ....................................... I SUBSCRIBE TO THE BASIC PREMISE OF THE SOCIETY: KNOWLEDGE CAN BE ACQUIRED ONLY THROUGH HUMAN ENDEAVOURS AND NOT THROUGH REVELATION AND THAT ALL PROBLEMS CAN AND MUST BE FACED IN TERMS OF MAN’S MORAL AND INTELLECTUAL RESOURCES WITHOUT INVOKING SUPERNATURAL POWERS. Signature To The Society for the Promotion of Scientific Temper Post Box No. 47-49. While modern science and technology is now accepted everywhere as an integral part of one’s everyday living, few ever stop to think, particularly in our country, about the obligations which rest on the users of the benefits of science and technology.

Unfortunately, this organization has not fulfilled the promise with which it was started, and the blame for this failure lies squarely on the shoulders of our scientists. II Scientific temper is the acceptance of the premise that the method of science is the only method through which knowledge may be acquired, and the premise that all human problems can be (and should be) solved only in terms of knowledge acquired through the application of the method of science; scientific temper, therefore, requires rejection of all that is incompatible—at any given time in history—with the knowledge acquired through the application of the method of science.
