Questions tagged [science-in-society]
For questions about the use and perception of science by the inhabitants of a fictional world. Contrast with [science-based] which is for explaining fictional things with real-world science. Whereas [science-based] builds worlds using science (ex. "How could a dragon realistically breathe fire?"), [science-in-society] asks how people treat and use science in-world (ex. "How would a society with a taboo on dissecting people develop medicine?").
