Cultural Engineering of Science & Technology

Document Type : Research Paper




Summary Cultural Engineering of Science is focused on making changes based on a cultural approach. Therefor, first of all "the meaning and necessity of cultural engineering of science" was examined. It came out that designing the geometry of science based on the rich Islamic culture and consequently for directing the science to Islamic excellence (development) is necessary. At second stage, a model was designed for cultural engineering of science which includes components (production, supply & productivity), levels (foundations, methods & theories) & effects (culture, culture of economy & culture of politics). By combining these 9 parameters a system was designed which defines the science geometry based on Islamic culture and cultural goals. At third step, after explaining basic concepts, a number of strategies were proposed for cultural engineering of science and technology.
