Modern civilization is based on science and our daily life rests solely on it. One must, therefore, know the basic principles and have a primary conception and knowledge of science without which man cannot live well purposefully and comfortably in our developing society today. Moreover, he cannot live in the society as a responsible and decent human being without the basic ideas of how science acts or tends to act. Attitudes are acquired and learned though varying experiences. One’s attitude towards a subject is an acquired tendency or a deposition. Attitudes are to a great extent responsible for a particular behavior of a person towards a subject. We may, therefore, assume that attitude as a determining factor of conception is an acquired tendency which prepares a person to lead one in a certain way towards natural objects or a class of objects, subject to conditions preventing the environment.
