Applied Arts and Sciences
is a category pretty much invented out of whole cloth for NuPedia
, corresponding very roughly to areas in which professional degrees of various sorts are obtainable. There is a fairly coherent concept behind the category, however: the notion is that we use
the natural and social sciences to shape our world. Law and public affairs addresses what we learn from PhiloSophy
, and PoliticalScience?
; the HealthSciences?
study ways to apply our knowledge of the BiologicalScience
s to improve human and animal health; AgriculturalScience?
applies knowledge of BotAny?
(and many other sciences, in fact) to improving the growing of crops; etc.
