HU 205 - History of Science, Technology and Medicine

In this course, students will explore the distinct yet increasingly overlapping histories of science, technology and medicine from prehistory to the present. Moving from stone choppers in prehistory, through the emergence of natural philosophy in ancient Greece, and the x-ray in the modern era, students will understand how our modern tools and understanding of the world have been influenced by practical need, careful observation and rigorous research. The course will also highlight the cultural and sociological influences on the development of science, technology and medicine.
