When we learn about Science nowadays, we do so in a variety of particular settings, which may include academic -School or University- or even just as a hobby or to gather general knowledge. In these environments, scientific laws are usually presented to us as self-evident truths, apparently easy to state and to prove. However, if we looked back, if we were be able to travel back in time, we would see and realise that each small step forward in scientific wisdom was in fact influenced
by many different scientists living in very diverse historical contexts, each dealing with their own individual beliefs and social statuses. In our Interdisciplinary Learning Course "Greatest Minds of all time: Science in the Service of Humanity" the students will take part in a very practical, active and cooperative learning environment, while they explore the intellectual and historical universes of these fascinating figures.
