Wissenschaft heißt Wissenschaft weil sie wissen schaft.
or in english:
science is named science because it creates knowledge.

Sounds much better in german imo.

Now too everybody wondering, about the german idea of science and where this word comes from.

"Wissenschaft" comes from the word "wissen" wich is either the verb "(to) know" or the noun "Knowledge"
The german language created the word "Wissenschaft" after they got in contact with the roman empire, the place where the idea of science comes from. but the romans did not conquer most of germany so that the people here mostly got german roots...

The word German is actually wrong aswell, but is understandable...
We call ourselves "Deutsche" and our country "Deutschland" this word comes from the europeen "Deutschen Landen" which is just the ""Deutschen" Lands" in Medieval times germany were many little states, only bound together by the language (which still differs alot in different parts of the country)
(there also were the "Franken Lande" wich are now French (the German word for that is "Frankreich" which still contains the medieval idea.)
And Now we come to the point I wanna make, actually a part of swiss and Austria and the netherlands (aswell as poland and parts of Czechia(and Luxembourg) were parts of the "Deutschen Lande" now these parts became independant states, cause we began world war 1...
And that is the reason you say....
"dutch", cause this comes from the word "Deutsch",
The english language calls netherlandish peoples Germans, and Germans after a kind of people that don't exist for more than 1000 years.
So yeah everything I'm trying to say is... english speaking people never knew much about europe... nor did they care.

or "nature knowledge"
