·         What does the history of civilization show?

Man always has to choose between the right and wrong use of science. Man has either used the inventions and discoveries of science or misused them.

·         How may the pursuit of knowledge be protected from being harmful?

Knowledge alone cannot be so useful. There have been many bad effects of knowledge due to lack of enough wisdom. So, knowledge should be essentially combined with wisdom. It can help any specialist to understand what evil consequences his achievement can have, outside his field. The teaching of wisdom can prevent the pursuit of knowledge from being harmful.
