Are scientists and explorers similar?



  1. 0 Votes

    In some ways yes, because they are both trying to discover something new: lands and territories for explorers, and scientific knowledge for scientists.

    That is about as far as the similarities go though. Their disciplines, goals, and personalities usually tend to be very different (the adventurous, athletic explorer vs. the intelligent, intellectual scientist.) Explorers (in the past at least) usually had rather selfish goals of finding resources and getting rich, while scientists tend to study technology and medicine in the hope of helping mankind (although that is not always true, take the atomic bomb or the development of pathological weapons for example.)
