The phrase “nature of science” (NOS) is often used in referring to issues such as what science is, how it works, the assumptions underlying the doing of science, how scientists operate as a social group and how society itself both influences and reacts to scientific endeavors. These and many other thoughts regarding the NOS are informed by contributions from several disciplines including, but not limited to, the history, philosophy, sociology, and psychology of science.
