    Re: science and technology

    Sent me to the dictionaries:


    • noun 1 the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. 2 a systematically organized body of knowledge on any subject.

    — ORIGIN Latin scientia, from scire ‘know’. technology

    • noun (pl. technologies) 1 the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. 2 the branch of knowledge concerned with applied sciences.

    — ORIGIN Greek tekhnologia ‘systematic treatment’

    [Shorter Oxford Dict.]
