Why is science such a difficult subject?

I have never understood why. After all science is logical consistent and demonstrable. I mean you cannot bring the share market to school, or the government’s finance departments or farms where wheat is grown into the classroom.

PABLO PICASSO (1881-1973) 'Bull - plate 1', December 5, 1945 (lithograph) Pablo Picasso created 'Bull' around the Christmas of 1945.

Pablo Picasso - Bull: a master class in abstraction

In this series of images, all pulled from a single stone, Picasso visually dissects the image of a bull to discover its essential presence through a progressive analysis of its form. Each plate is a successive stage in an investigation to find the absolute 'spirit' of the beast.
