Do you think scientific knowledge is not the 'absolute truth', but can only be evaluated for a particular culture and time?


Science can provide explanations which lay a claim to cutting across times and cultures. In a world as connected as ours, explanations are contested against each other and we land up with a truth violent to plurality, to creative ways of engaging with what is, or what seems to be. Within a purely utilitarian scenario some of those truths may be useful, but beyond that the subjective capacities and choice has an increasingly significant role to play.
