This book examines ways in which beliefs and values interact with science and science teaching. It looks at some of the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural contexts within which science has developed and considers how these factors can affect the choice of scientific theory. Various historical sections provide resource material for showing pupils the role of the history of science in the study of science. Interactions between science and religious belief are also analyzed to clarify the nature, strengths and limitations of science, as well as its place in the total curriculum.

Publication of this book is particularly timely as contributions to pupils' spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development are currently receiving emphasis across the whole curriculum.
