New tools enable new structures of knowledge and new ways of discovery.

      Therefore, Science is a body of knowledge and ideas and technology is just product of it. Science and Technology had been changed our society through ages. We can see visibly the hierarchical process of the development in science through the products, machines and tools from the past 'til the present.   Discourse on the interaction of science, technology and society treats how science and technology thus institutionalised still interact with society through the exchange of information, money, goods and human resources. Looking back over the development trajectory of SOS, there is a series leading from (2), to (1) and on to (3).Cited by: 2.
