SCIENCE EDUCATION AND THE TWO CULTURES

James Trefil

Abstract


Thinking about a suitable topic to be put at the opening pages of this special issue dedicated to the 80th anniversary of academician Bojan Soptrajanov, we deemed more than appropriate to place the thought pro-voking overview of a big friend of Macedonia and the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, our honorary professor James Trefil, a Clarence Robinson Professor of Physics, from the George Mason Uni-versity in Fairfax, Virginia. Prof. Trefil is a great scientist and even greater educator (the latter is known to anyone that has read at least one of the 50+ books written by him). The overview is on the (always relevant) topics like science, science education, science teaching and scientific literacy, as a need in a truly democratic society.
