In my recent book, On Science, Education and Something Else, I address fundamental aspects of science, mathematics, and philosophy, but I also consider the social impact of knowledge, and examples of contexts in which mathematics and physics were born as sciences, not born of mathematical abstraction. It was the first science to be created in the history of mankind. I also deal with the personalities and the obstacles of our time. It is a book that can be read in parts if the reader so decides, or they can read it in full. I will allow myself to share with you the comments of Dr Monica Chavez, Dr Abdo Falcon and Pablo Ruiz who commented on this text in a presentation held at the UAdeC Ethnobiological Park, under construction, in Fisca, Coahuila.
As Dr. Chavez explained, the book consists of five chapters: the first deals with the origins of the semester in the school, referring to its Greek origin and influence, as well as its development over time, and wonders whether a system remains for the teacher a single presentation on different topics in front of students as an ideal tool of knowledge. In the second chapter, the author shows us an overview of mathematics, starting from the importance and importance of calculus, to aspects related to social perception towards this specialization, such as fear of mathematics, a phenomenon we have witnessed among young people and that. Unfortunately, not only does it arise from the apparent complexity of this system, but it also arises, in many cases, from deficiencies in its teaching that we did not wish to identify, which include the intolerance of many teachers that involves teaching it, a real torment and that which they set Set aside feedback from knowledge. The third chapter is devoted to philosophy. It deals with its relationship to science and its origin and focuses on the great philosophical questions that have been raised in the various stages of humanity. Chapter Four refers to the personalities and obstacles of our time, such as the icon Elon Musk and the Argentine Prize-winning scientist Rolando Garcia, who agrees, in the author’s opinion, that there are no limits to the advancement of science, simply there is no answer. In chapter five, the author deals with the historical aspects of science and knowledge, explaining how the economic, social, geographic, cultural, and even political conditions for a certain period affected the generation of scientific knowledge.
And Dr. Abdullah commented: When you read this book, you are walking from the origins of science, and the mathematics of the Sumerians, the Arcadians, the Assyrians and the Babylonians (Mesopotamia), where civilization was born … where the land was not rich or generous. Also in these lines, we will enjoy a great analysis of the relationship between mathematics, the first continent of knowledge that shapes science, and its relationship to architecture. From there, the author takes you into the physics of Galileo and Newton with the mathematics of motion as a mediator and its impact on economic development in Europe, to reach the mandatory topic, Einstein.
Now Dr Pablo Ruiz’s comments: In my opinion, the author takes us by hand with a clear logic to extended classrooms, the way in which science and philosophy have been developed and how you are, influenced and influenced not only by education, but in social development, and the construction of buildings that he repeats many times during his writings. When I had to tackle the second semester called “Some Mathematics,” I have to admit that I did it with some trepidation, because although I do not consider myself among the people who fear mathematics, my knowledge actually did not go beyond the analytical geometry of the plane, however , I was struck by the simplicity with which the author deals with this chapter in a way that I understand. I must say, then, that this book “On Science, Education and Something Else” is an interesting book, understandable in its complexity, and which reflects the overall vision the author has for the world around us.
