Science is the literature of truth? in other words, Science is knowledge socially produced...

I need some opinions, do you agree or disagree, why?

I choose disagree because even science has and will sometimes come to wrong conclusions.


Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. A dictionary definition is: Date: 14th century
1 : the state of knowing : knowledge as distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding
2 a : a department of systematized knowledge as an object of study <the science of theology> b : something (as a sport or technique) that may be studied or learned like systematized knowledge <have it down to a science>
3 a : knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method b : such knowledge or such a system of knowledge concerned with the physical world and its phenomena : NATURAL SCIENCE
4 : a system or method reconciling practical ends with scientific laws <culinary science>

A definition of literature: writings in prose or verse;

One for truth: (1) : the state of being the case : FACT (2) : the body of real things, events, and facts : ACTUALITY (3) : often capitalized : a transcendent fundamental or spiritual reality b : a judgment, proposition, or idea that is true or accepted as true <truths of thermodynamics> c : the body of true statements and propositions
3 a : the property (as of a statement) of being in accord with fact or reality b : chiefly British : TRUE 2 c : fidelity to an original or to a standard

Thus, knowledge is written truth? That's an interesting concept but I agree the wrong conclusion is possible!
