It gives us immense pleasure in presenting the First Edition of the book on Soft Skills titled “Science and Society” under the new CBCS syllabus of Third Semester B.A., B.Com. and BBM courses of Bangalore University.

We inhabit a world today that is shaped significantly by Science and Technology (S&T). S&T has enriched our lives and proved to be beneficial in our livelihoods. At the same time, many of the products of S&T pose challenges, and in ways, even threaten the existence of societies. This course, meant for students of the humanities / commerce streams, is to provide an overview of the nature of S&T and its interaction with society. It is meant to provide a broad introduction to the most significant discoveries and inventions of modern science that have changed our lives and to bring into focus the need for developing a critical appraisal of the issues related to the connection of S&T with society.

The present book adequately takes care of all the units under the syllabus prescribed by Bangalore University under Soft Skills Paper. The matter is presented in a lucid manner considering the ease of learning for the beginners in Science and Society phenomenon. The three units relating to a brief introduction to science and the practice and discoveries of Science, Science and the Public, Modern Science and its impact on Societies and Science, Life and Livelihoods are covered. The book is simple but profound and rich in comprehending all aspects of Science and Society.
