To understand science is to understand everything from nature to geopolitics to the world of business.
How so? Science drives the discoveries that help (and harm) our environment, cause global controversy and fuel commerce. Understanding the scientific method, helps you to understand the rigor behind medical breakthroughs or the chemistry behind global warming.
