Abstract

PCF2 // Today, we are in the age of science, science and technology have become a routine to our daily lives. Science and scientists are essential for progress and achievement of society in a number of reasons. First, the science or scientists fight against the feudal outlook and attitudes and value system, and help promising within the individual scientific outlook and attitude. Secondly, one of the blessing of science to society is prosperity of a country or nation. Every individual possesses a constitution with its design and make up of his personality. The total combination of its interrelatedness constitute individual’s temperamental nature. Scientific temper means the development of a new value system, including a new ethics and philosophy. It is the human value which starts with the cognition of ones own self in the reality and correlates the same with all that is conceived and perceived in the ecology through the pursuit of observation, analysis, synthesis and suspended judgement depending on the limits of ‘opening up’. What is the actual state of scientific temperament among students? How much different groups of students differ in their scientific temperament? To answer these pertinent questions a study has been undertaken with the following specific objectives: 1) to study the level of scientific temperament of IGNOU students and conventional university students. And 2) to study the difference in the scientific temperament of IGNOU students and conventional university students. //
