Actually in English you normally wouldn't lump it under "Science" -- and most
mathematicians would protest at such.
There are a surprising number of differences between the implications of
"Science" and "Wissenschaft". (Just using German and English as an example
- -- but this is problematic as academic fields tend to have pretty different
implications in different languages.)
Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.
