Nice thoughtful and short essay on the value of studying (and doing) science to the scientist student.

You become a different person with scientific training, and we do science because we value that kind of person. Science is not only bridge-building (usefulness and technology driven) and knowledge-building (adding to the pile of facts we know about reality) it is also people, character, and citizen-building.

Surf over to “So, what’s science good for?”on the Rationally Speaking blog and judge for yourself.
