This paper discusses the nature of scientific and commonsense knowledge, and their relationship to one another. The discussion is organised under four main themes: the nature of scientific knowledge and reasoning; the importance of science and of its role in the development of rationality; the nature of commonsense knowledge and reasoning; differences and similarities between science and commonsense. Finally, I discuss some implications for the teaching of science.
