Is it inevitable that the Historical Development of the N.S’s has lead us to our current way of doing N.S? Why or why not?

Yes, it is inevitable that the historical development of the natural sciences has lead us to our current way of doing naturals science. This is because all scientific research and knowledge are based off of the historical development, the modern sciences are built around the development of natural sciences in the past. In other words, the history of natural sciences shaped the way we consider and think about natural sciences, without this contribution to science, the way we approach the natural sciences would be very different. This is proven by considering the very beginning of humanity, when there is absolutely no influence by previous historical development, the way we perceive sciences is very different to how we perceive it now. The historical development of the natural sciences plays an important role in modern sciences, therefore, it is inevitable that the Historical Development of the natural sciences has lead us to ur current way of doing natural sciences.
