AbstractThe aim of this article is a justification of the expediency of study of the scientists' biographies in physics course. Study of the biographic materials is one of the ways of motivation of learning and development of morality, humanity, internationalism. The selection criteria of biographic material have been allocated and method of study of the scientists' biographies has been described. Biographical data, scientific achievements and character traits are the components of “scientist's image”. Results proved that the use of the biographic materials raises the level of emotional component of learners' cognitive activity in physics teaching. Method of study of the scientists' biographies can be used in teaching of other school subjects.

Influence of Spirituality in the Career and STEM-Based Research Approach of Scientists for Sustainable Development: A Study on the Perspective of Scientists from a Public Research University in MalaysiaMohd Razip Bajuri; Suzieleez Syrene Abdul Rahim; Edy Hafizan Mohd Shahali; Siti Mistima Maat (MDPI AG, 2021-10-01)This explanatory case study aims to formulate a framework of spiritual influence on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)-based research for sustainable development from the perspective of university scientists. This single-site case qualitative study involves seven participants from a Malaysian public research university with a variety of specific research fields. Questions regarding the driving factors of their research strategy for sustainable technology developments were asked. Consequently, the main driving factors on using STEM approaches for sustainable developments are career competency enhancements. This theme can be proven with elements, such as STEM for enhancing the ability to expand a specific field contribution, improving interdisciplinary management, obtaining outsource support, and enhancing innovative capability. Meanwhile, spiritual influence on sustainable development is a part of the philosophy of participants and can be proven through the elements of moral and ethical beliefs with respect to religious values in their scientific career and STEM-based research practice. Therefore, the influence of spirituality is a crucial concept, which can ensure social, emotional, economic, and environmental sustainability development. This framework is built among limited participants. Thus, confirming this framework by using a wide range of samples is encouraged. Moreover, this study generally has implications for sustainable development using STEM-based practice for specific field expertise. The concept aims to provide remarkable contributions to the growth of comprehensive, holistic, and sustainable development and to extend the current literature on STEM research approaches by inculcating spiritual elements.
A Disputa Entre "Cientistas Jesuítas" e "Cientistas Iluministas" no Mundo Ibero-Americano [Dispute Between "Scientists Jesuits" and "Illuminati scientists" at the Ibero-American World]Domingues, Beatriz Helena (Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora, 2002)"o objetivo é distinguir, nos escritos jesuíticos e nas fonnulações dos reformadores iluministas ligados ao Despotismo Esclan:cido, continuidades e descontinuidades com a tradição eclética que vinha caracterizando as sociedades ibéricas, particularmente a espanhola, desde o século XVI, representada então pela hegemonia da Companhia de Jesus, com as qual os reformadores ilustrados do século XVIII se propõem a romper. A idéia é abordar a disputa entre os reformadores iluministas e os jesuítas enquanto uma competição entre duas diferentes apropriações de um conjunto de proposições filosóficas em voga no século XVIII, considerando que tanto os jesuítas quanto os chamados 'iluministas ibéricos' tentavam conciliar as novas idéias com premissas tradicionais, ainda que em diferentes direções. O embate trava-se, portanto, no interior do iluminismo ibérico, tanto metropolitano quanto colonial. A oposição metrópole-colõnia vem à tona devido à influência exercida pelos jesuítas na Nova Espanha para a emergência de uma consciência crioula, expressa em uma 'ciência patriótica', misturando história natural, teologia e política" ["lhe aim of this article is to demonstrate, in the Jesuit writings and in the formulations of the reformers Iinked to enlightened despotism, the continuities and discontinuities with the eclectic tradition that had characterized Iberian societies, particularly Spain, since the sixteenth century. lhis tradition was well represented by the hegemony of the Society of Jesus, with which the eighteenth centUlY Enlightenment reformers intended to break. lhe idea is to approach the dispute between Enlightenment reformers and Jesuits as a competition between two different interpretations of a body of philosophical propositions in vogue during the eighteenth centUlY, considering that both the Jesuits and the named "enlightened Iberians" were trying to reconcile new ídeas with tradítíonal ones, although in different directions. Actually this battle takes place wíthin the Iberian Enlightenment, both in its metropolitan and colonial versions. lhe "motherland-colony" opposition surfaces due to the Jesuit influence in New Spain on the emergence of Creole consciousness, expressed in a "patriotic science", mixing natural history, theology and politics"]
The Death Of An Accused Scientist - The Reporting on Bruce Ivins and It's Use of The Mad Scientist StereotypeFarmer, Hontas F (SelectedWorks, 2008-08-02)The mad scientist stereotype seems to be alive and well. This time it is emerging in a disturbing way. A US Army scientist, Bruce E. Ivins, committed suicide at the age of 62. He has been implicated in the Anthrax case from 2001. You remember those letters that started to show up after 9/11 "Death to America, Death to Israel, Praise be to Allah!" (That is another set of stereotypes for another day. Those letters fueled Anti Arab/"Arab looking person" hate crimes and islamophobia for months after 9/11.) Well now that he is dead and cannot protect himself from allegations he has basically been tried and convicted by media for those terrorist attacks.
