Abstract

This project discusses Industrialized Science, Gaia, and how they relate to the environmental problems of today. Industrialized science, a large source of the environmental crisis, is a connection of science to the production process. Gaia is a theory in which the earth is a living organism that maintains a stable system for life on the planet earth. Through concepts such as Gaia in models, paradigms and worldviews, science is becoming less industrialized and more ecologically friendly.
