Abstract :
The purpose of the study is to explore the scientific outlook of the people and its development either through educational institutions or through other forms of organizations like Kerala Sastra Sahitya Parishad in Kerala. The basic theme of this study is the need for science in every society, particularly in Tiruchirappalli. St.Joseph's College through its Extension Department Programme namely the SHEPHERD, an acronym for Science and Humanities for Peoples' Development, trains the students to bring out necessary changes in villages around Tiruchirappalli by applying classroom learning to peoples' needs and learning from them. In this paper, the views of the students are collected as responses for arriving at an analytical construct. In addition, questions were asked about their abstract level thinking in connection to humanity, equality, liberty and analytical ability.
