An inquiry into the philosophical area of any human endeavor results in the framing of "why" questions. Why study science at all?, naturally becomes one of these questions which has great relevance to the field of science education. "How" and "what" questions generally use up most of the science educator's time and efforts. This is not an attempt to negate the importance of "how" and "what" questions (they are the stuff of science); rather, it is an attempt to determine what the case for science is in our educational process.
