Discoveries in the sciences are occurring constantly contributing to the changing defeition of the term "science" itself. Daniel Patrick Thurs examines what these controversies say about how we understand science now and in the future. Thurs describes how science-originally used as a synonym for general knowledge-became a term to distinguish particular subjects as elite forms of study accessible only to the highly educated.
