Caminhos da Descoberta

World views are very important to us and reflect continuing historical change. As human beings, our social cohesion depends at least partly on shared world views. How different peoples arrange and rearrange competing world views is therefore likely to become one of the principal themes of public affairs in the 21st and succeeding centuries. My main concern here is to reflect upon recent changes in the scientific world view to which most university teachers and those they educate subscribe nowadays, with brief observations on other, widely prevalent outlooks upon this world that clearly are called for to put contemporary ideas in context.
