75 Reasons to Become a Scientist

American Scientist celebrates its seventy-fifth anniversary

The Editors

To be perfectly honest, I don’t see myself as a scientist (not in the present-day sense of the word, that is). I was shown while still quite young that the world was so much more than just what we see and hear and sense. Science was shown to be a means through which we could know of another greater world that lies just beneath the surface of our everyday lives. Once I knew this, I knew I would have to learn to see as a scientist. In days gone by, they used to call us natural philosophers. Now they just call us scientists!
