Chemistry : the impure science by Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent( )

32 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 3,346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces the central issues in the philosophy of chemistry. Mobilizing the theme of impurity, this book explores the tradition of chemistry's negative image. It argues for the positive philosophical value of chemistry, reflecting its characteristic practical engagement with the material world
The artificial and the natural : an evolving polarity by William R Newman( )

19 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays - written by specialists of different periods and various disciplines - reveal that the division between nature and art has been continually challenged and reassesed in Western thought. Nature and art, the essays suggest, are mutually constructed, defining and redifining themselves
The public image of chemistry by Joachim Schummer( )

17 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular associations with chemistry range from poisons, hazards, chemical warfare and environmental pollution to alchemical pseudoscience, sorcery and mad scientists, which gravely affect the public image of science in general. While chemists have merely complained about their public image, social and cultural studies of science have largely avoided anything related to chemistry. This book provides, for the first time, an in-depth understanding of the cultural and historical contexts in which the public image of chemistry has emerged. It argues that this image has been shaped through recurring and unlucky interactions between chemists in popularizing their discipline and nonchemists in expressing their expectations and fears of science. Written by leading scholars from the humanities, social sciences and chemistry in North America, Europe and Australia, this volume explores a blind spot in the science-society relationship and calls for a constructive dialog between scientists and their public

A history of chemistry by Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent and Isabelle Stengers present chemistry as a science in search of an identity, or rather as a science whose identity has changed in response to its relation to society and to other disciplines. The authors have written a book deeply enthusiastic about the conceptual, experimental, and technological complexities and challenges with which chemists have grappled over many centuries." "Beginning with chemistry's polymorphous beginnings, featuring many independent discoveries all over the globe, the narrative moves to a discussion of chemistry's niche in the eighteenth-century notion of Natural Philosophy and on to its nineteenth-century role as an exemplary scientific means of reaching positive knowledge. The authors also address contentious issues of concern to contemporary scientists: whether chemistry has become a service science; whether its status has "declined" because its value lies in assisting the leading-edge research activities of molecular geneticists and materials scientists; or whether it is redefining its agenda." "A History of Chemistry treats chemistry as a study whose subject matter, the nature and behavior of qualitatively different materials, remains constant, while the methods and disciplinary boundaries of the science constantly shift."--Jacket
Science and spectacle in the European Enlightenment by Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of case studies describing public demonstrations in Britain, Germany, Italy and France exemplifies the wide variety of settings for scientific activities in the European Enlightenment. Filled with sparks and smells, the essays raise broader issues about the ways in which modern science established its legitimacy and social acceptability. They point to two major features of the cultures of science in the eighteenth century: entertainment and utility. Experimental demonstrations were attended by apothecaries and craftsmen for vocational purposes. At the same time, they had to fit in with the taste of both polite society and market culture. Public demonstrations were a favourite entertainment for ladies and gentlemen and a profitable activity for instrument makers and booksellers."--Jacket
Histoire de la chimie by Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2019 in French and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage présente la chimie comme une science en quête d'identité, hantée par la question de sa nature, de son rang dans l'encyclopédie. La chimie est une histoire, toujours en marche, jalonnée de spectaculaires conquêtes et de dures batailles pour la dignité et la reconnaissance. Une fresque pleine de surprises et de rebondissements, que les deux auteurs, s'appuyant sur des années de recherche, ont réussi à rendre passionnante, sans rien abandonner de la rigueur historique et scientifique
Eléments d'histoire des sciences by Michel Serres( Book )

27 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro pretende contribuir a resolver la crisis cultural en la que nos debatimos y que se debe, entre otras causas, a esta ajeneidad, a este divorcio entre dos mundos, que se convierte a veces en hostilidad y a veces en adoración, ambas intempestivas. También pretende favorecer el establecimiento de una enseñanza generalizada de esta disciplina, tanto en el nivel secundario como en el superior
Matière à penser : essais d'histoire et de philosophie de la chimie by Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La chimie est délaissée des philosophes et historiens des sciences. Cette discipline ne serait-elle pas bonne à penser? Qu'est-ce que ce silence, ce mépris ou cette méconnaissance nous enseignent sur le régime du savoir en chimie? Inversement, la chimie méprisée, méconnue ou simplement ignorée ne signalerait-elle pas les travers des philosophes et les limites de leur pouvoir de conceptualiser et de penser? Cet ouvrage donne un aperçu de la complexité de ces questions en adoptant un point de vue symétrique où se croisent les regards des chimistes et des philosophes. En abordant les problématiques posées par les théories de la matière et en étudiant la question du corps du chimiste et de son statut social, ce volume s'interroge aussi sur l'image de la chimie et sur le rejet du "chimique" au profit du "naturel" très en vogue aujourd'hui

10 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in French and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'opinion publique et la science entretiennent des relations proches du malentendu. Ces équivoques ont des racines historiques qui plongent jusqu'aux origines grecques de la science. Par une sélection de tableaux rappelant des moments de confrontation entre science et public, cette étude propose un parcours de sensibilisation au rôle de l'opinion dans la conduite des sciences
Rousseau et les sciences( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'imagerie conventionnelle est loin d'associer le nom de Rousseau à la connaissance scientifique. Ne fait-on pas communément de son premier Discours une denonciation des méfaits des sciences? Ne voit-on pas dans son oeuvre l'exaltation d'une nature préromantique, opposée à celle des physiciens, des chimistes? En interrogeant précisément les rapports entretenus par Rousseau avec la culture scientifique de son temps, ces études mettent en évidence le déni de la culture et de la pratique scientifique de Rousseau, le déni du rôle joué par les référents scientifiques dans l'élaboration de sa pensée
Research objects in their technological setting( )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What kind of stuff is the world made of? What is the nature or substance of things? These are ontological questions, and they are usually answered with respect to the objects of science. The objects of technoscience tell a different story that concerns the power, promise and potential of things - not what they are but what they can be. Seventeen scholars from history and philosophy of science, epistemology, social anthropology, cultural studies and ethics each explore a research object in its technological setting, ranging from carbon to cardboard, from arctic ice cores to nuclear waste, from wetlands to GMO seeds, from fuel cells to the great Pacific garbage patch. Together they offer fascinating stories and novel analytic concepts, all the while opening up a space for reflecting the specific character of techno scientific objects. With their promise of sustainable innovation and a technologically transformed future, these objects are highly charged with values and design expectations. By clarifying their mode of existence, we are learning to come to terms more generally with the furniture of the techno scientific world - where, for example, the 'dead matter' of classical physics is becoming the smart material' of emerging and converging technologies. Even though technoscientific research is as old as alchemy and pharmacy agricultural research and synthetic chemistry, philosophers of science had little to say about it until recently. This book serie:. is the first to explicitly accept the challenge to study not just technical aspects of theory development and hypothesis testing but the specific ways in which knowledge is produced in a technological setting. When one seeks to achieve basic capabilities of manipulation, visualization, or predictive control, how are problems defined and research fields established, what kinds of explanations are sought, how are findings validated, what are the contributions of different kinds of expertise, how do epistemic and social values enter into the research process? And most importantly for civic observers of contemporary research: how is robustness and reliability achieved even in the absence of complete scientific understanding? Book jacket

Ce projet démiurgique est aujourd'hui au coeur de ce qu'on appelle la "technoscience", étendard pour certains, repoussoir pour d'autres."--Page 4 de la couverture
