In what ways may disagreement aid the pursuit of knowledge in the natural and human sciences?

Knowledge is facts, information, and skills that is acquired through life experiences, education and encounters, it is the key element to our success to growth and development and our further pursuit to further knowledge but without space for disagreement to create a advancement and enhancement of ideas, the further evolving pursuit of knowledge is seized. Disagreements are essential in the pursuit of knowledge in both human and natural science, as through discussion and evaluation this provides us with evidence, evidence on which we look into to find further improvement in the knowledge already upheld, and to further improve on. As an American writer and management consultant, Peter F Drucker said, “Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes”. Without disagreements to aid the pursuit of knowledge, for knowledge to be challenged upon, it will vanish in thin air, as without disagreements, knowledge will be forgotten about, as it will not be discussed upon.

To aid the pursuit of knowledge through disagreements can be proved by chemistry as an natural science example. In chemistry, disagreements are carried out through any experiment that is encountered, with this observations and evaluations are created to indicate all areas that have to be looked through, to find the problem and to further pursue the investigation to further pursue the knowledge we have on the experiment. In chemistry, theories and not based up what is true, but instead theories that have yet to be further challenged and improved to so re-evaluation the theories from the disagreements.

In chemistry there are three different theories of acid & bases, the Arrhenius Theory, the Bronsted-Lowry Theory, and lastly the Lewis Theory. The simplest theory of the three, the Arrhenius Theory, where the theory of acids is based on the idea of the behavior hydrogen ions in aqueous solution, where an acid has to contain a hydrogen ion (H+), where a base contain hydroxide ion (OH-). With disagreements, and further challenging the theory of the Arrhenius Theory, two different theories of the acid & bases have been created to further pursuit the knowledge of the theories of acid & ...
