Over the years, science has pyrrhically succeeded in building a popular image for herself to the effect that she is the paradigm of rationality, the source of happiness, the benchmark of civilization, the locutory of all discourse, the gateway to the house of solutions and the paradigm of objective and impersonal character.These tantalizing and enchanting theatricalities of science have made people to conclude willy-billy (in the words of Joseph Agassi, 1980), that science is able to control the course of events, enhance man’s comfort, prolong his life span and happiness on earth by inventing more and more technological facilities.
