Detalhes do evento

OBJECTIVO: Divulgação do Evento

Este projecto interdisciplinar é concebido para ajudar os alunos a conhecerem-se melhor enquanto pessoas; a perceber melhor como funciona o mundo real e que cursos e carreiras serão as mais adequadas para cada um deles, por forma a conseguirem sobreviver num mundo em permanente mudança. Trata-se de uma nova visão dos vários domínios da ciência - Science Matters - enquanto actividade humana, realçando a forma como o ser humano altera a paisagem do conhecimento. Algumas questões são colocadas:

 Q1: What is Scimat?

A: It is a new discipline that recognizes “everything in Nature is part of science.”

 Q2: What do you mean by Nature?

A: Nature includes all living and nonliving material systems, humans in particular.

 Q3: What do you mean by Science?

A: Science is humans’ pursuit of knowledge about all things in Nature, which includes all human and nonhuman systems, without bringing in God or any supernatural.

 Q4: What are the topics that scimat covers?

 A: All topics related to humans. That is, all the topics in the humanities and social science, medical sciences and natural sciences.

Q5: Why are the humanities so important?

A: All the world tragedies (poverty, war, injustice, corruption, etc.) are human dependent matters and could be traced to the underdevelopment of the humanities in the last 2,400 years since Plato and Confucius.

Q6: What new method or new tool is used by scimat in its research?

A: None. Scimat advocates the use of any method or tool that is available and applicable as long as honesty and ethics are respected. Reason: Scimat is about the search for knowledge which knows no boundaries and no pre-determined routes.

Q7: Then what is new about scimat?

A: The concept that “all human-dependent matters are part of science” is new.

Q 8: So what?

A: Humanity advances through new concepts. Examples: “All men are born free” brings down slavery; “all men are born equal,” royalties and totalitarian regimes; “all women are born equal, too,”restrictions on women’s rights in education, employment and voting.

Q 9: Will all the world problems be solved if enough number of people become scimatists?

A: We don’t know. But, in our judgment learned from history, scimat is the best, practical way to make the world better and more peaceful since people would be more enlightened and, hopefully, act more rationally, humbly and kindly toward others and the environment. The next step is to educate the decision makers.

Q10: What is scimat’s take home message?

A: Humanities are part of science.
