After not doing well in my quiz I decided to go back and read chapter for a 2nd time to see if I can grasp the information in a better way. I also started reading one of my elective reading that I will write my paragraph on. But, before I start writing I want to understand what is going on in the chapter. Although it seemed pretty straight forward at first, I have come to the descion that it might be the hardest chapter I have done so far.
After not passing my quiz for the second time I have come to the realization that I should focus on the area which has been giving me problems. Therefore, I have decided to look into pseudo-science, science, and empirical evidence for my paragraph. I will try to create a connection between these three aspects then later use them in my retake. After looking into them more deeply I am sure I will have a better understanding of them. Currently article I am reading focuses on the care effect
I have started to rewrite my paragraph for my project. My first paragraph was very broad and I decided that I needed focus more on describing my question and how it relates to the given example. To do this I went back and read my article again because I forgot parts of it. Then I copied and pasted my paragraph and started to fix my mistakes.
For my elective reading I decided to read about the care effect. My main reason to read this was to base my paragraph of off it. Through this reading I learned more about the differences between pseudoscience and science through empirical evidence. Empirical evidence is gaining evidence through experience. The care effect is pseudoscience because it has yet to be scientifically proved. Even so, we are able to find empirical evidence in both pseudoscience and science. Through given experiences we are able to make findings in both field. The care effect implies that patients shown care through a more personal relationship will recover faster than regular patients. We can see that this is the case most patients that were shown this type of care. But there is no scientific evidence to make it a science.
Through this TED talks video one can understand the relationship between art at sciences. At first when thinking about it art and science it seemed like they would not have anything in common. After watching this video I have come to realize there is much more than meets the eye. Science can be embraced in the form of art. We can show our understanding of medical and natural sciences through pictures, but with art we can modify these pictures to a greater extent. With art we can add higher detail that cannot be seen through a picture. I think this will be a good extension proposal because it would help create a major connection between 2 AOKs.
Question: “Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.” To what extent do you agree with this claim?
Example: The care effect has more of an impact on people that are being treated. Nathanael Johnson
Answer: If people are treated differently or think they are being treated in a better way through the use of different medication. Many of these people show improvement in their situation
Science is a way of thinking and implying rather than a body of knowledge. Thinking has great impact on science through the scientific method it can even be applied into pseudoscience. A great example of this implication is the care-effect. The care effect implies that patients shown care through more personal interactions it will cause a positive impact on their treatment. Although, nothing different is done to patients other than better interactions, no medical drugs, their conditions improve at an increased rate over the patients that are not shown this type of care. This can be related back to the placebo effect but, care effect has no scientific proof putting it into a pseudoscience state.
My Improved Paragraph
Science is a way of thinking rather than a body of knowledge. Thinking has great impact on science through the scientific method it can even be applied into pseudoscience. Science is a way of thinking because for new knowledge to be found one must create a hypothesis first, which requires critical thinking. A great example of this thinking is the care-effect, although not proven it is a plausible hypothesis. The care effect implies that patients shown care through more personal interactions will cause a positive impact on their treatment and show improvements on their health. Although, nothing different is done to patients’ treatment other than better interactions with them on a personal level, their conditions improve at an increased rate over the patients that are not shown this type of care. The patients who are not shown this type of care and just given the medical treatment show less impact on their health rather than people who are shown special care through the “Care-effect”. This can be related back to the placebo effect but, care effect has no scientific proof putting it into a pseudoscience state. Overall, although no scientifically proven the care effect is a way of thinking, one day with enough evidence it could take a scientific state which would put it into the category of science.
