The world has changed dramatically since Shakespeare’s death 400 years ago. That change is largely due to a method, the scientific method. It helps us find the objective streak in our subjective minds that Shakespeare so perceptively and vividly illustrated.
With this scientific method, any individual can find out the cause or explanation of any phenomenon or observation and convince another individual that it is valid, even if the two disagree on social, political, cultural, economic, or religious issues.
Therein lies the method’s power, the reason it has provided so much economic and life-style benefit to society, and why a career in science became mainstream and much sought after.
