ULEP, LEO MARK Y.
A self-sufficient and self-contained discipline is important for its own sake. By providing a coherent, intelligible account of the past, it satisfies a profound human yearning for knowledge about our roots. It requires no justification other than that.
A man without knowledge with his prior is a man of no prospect. We have been this far where everything is almost high-end; from the food we eat, clothes we wear, the way we communicate and transport, and to the devices we exploit. Yet, how come we have been in here? We certainly owe it to our past. Our ancestors contributed much knowledge, skills, processes, and ...view middle of the document...
By the end of the 20th century, industrialization or its effects had reached almost every corner of the globe.
The period of Industrial Revolution (18th century-present) is indeed a prolific period known to man, because it contributes much to the growth and development of science, technology, and precisely with the society. It is considered because of various noticeable accounts, which have greatly impacted with such growth and development. This is known to be the period of anything but everything. The Industrial Revolution is the result of many fundamental, interrelated changes that transformed agricultural economies into industrial ones. In this period, the major concern and definitely the most immediate changes is in the nature of “production”. This was because productivity and technical efficiency grew dramatically, in part through the systematic application of scientific and practical knowledge to the manufacturing processes. As in this period the rapid applications of science and machinery to agriculture to produce greater yield had begun. Moreover, people in this time had the extreme zealous desire to what was produced, as well as where and how to produce. The consequence of this is the Industrial Revolution leads to the growth of cities as people moved from rural areas into urban communities in search of work and different prospects. Furthermore, technologies rise dramatically in every portion of the world. These technologies are the ones that bring also dramatic growth and development to science, technology, and society. Technologies in this period that bring infinite opportunities to man are; steam engine, threshing machine, steam power, electromagnetic induction, photography, computer, telegraph, photographic paper, telephone, phonograph, electric light, motor car, x-rays and radioactivity, air transportation, rocket and space flight, the atomic bomb, DNA, and the internet/3W. With these technologies in this period, it seems nothing is impossible, man can possibly do whatever he wanted and make his life at supremacy. Thus, this period is considered to be much more living with than other periods like the pre-historic and the middle ages where many things were not yet fully furnished and man depends on his bare hands to perform a work. However, with these technologies, one can over-stand the others, and that is the “electricity and magnetism” as if almost all the technologies in this period use electricity or applies the principle of electricity or magnetism in order to function (e.g. the computers will not operate without electric power, airplanes will not fly without engine which...
