Science, People & Politics. Issue five, September - October, 2009, volume i, Volume II.
Science in action, or historiography.
In this issue, Science, People & Politics summarises and reviews how two voices of authority - the Roman Catholic Church and The Royal Society of London - position their current concepts of science within their view of human affairs. This is meant as a practical service for readers, not as an analysis of either world view in their different societal and regional settings, nor of the significance of science in the modern world. Science is still understood by people in many different ways, even among those who earn their living by doing science. And the magazine is not intending to judge either voice of authority, because those voices are empowered by a democratic mandate granted by those who voluntarily participate in some or all of their formalised activities whilst retaining the right to criticise the authority, methods and words of the leaders of each.
