sci·ence       /sī'əns/

etymology - circa 1300, "knowledge acquired by study," also "a particular branch of knowledge," from Old French science, from Latin scientia "knowledge," prp. of scire "to know," probably originally "to separate one thing from another, to distinguish," related to scindere "to cut, divide," from PIE root skei-. Modern sense of "non-arts studies" is attested from 1670s. The distinction is commonly understood as between theoretical truth (Greek episteme) and methods for effecting practical results (tekhne). In the 17th through 18th centuries this concept commonly was called philosophy. -- Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2012 Douglas Harper
