The consolidation efforts of such writers as Pella, Agin, and Gabel show the manner in which Vision II of SL originated. For example, of the six categories of Pella's composite definition, science itself is the appropriate source for three of them (basic concepts in science, nature of science, and ethics that control the scientist's work). Those are based on Vision I. The other three (interrelationships of science and society, interrelationships of science and the humanities, and differences between science and technology), are based on Vision II—science-related situations.
