History of women in the sciences : readings from Isis by Sally Gregory Kohlstedt( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is it that some women have created successful careers in science, when historically there have been so many barriers that exclude women from engaging in scientific work? Here is a comparative history that illuminates some of the patterns that have emerged in the history of women in science." "This book features some of the most influential and pioneering studies of women in the sciences, with a special focus on patterns of education, access, barriers, and opportunities for women's work in science. Spanning the 17th through the 20th centuries, the book demonstrates the meaning and power of gender experienced by women in the sciences." "This book provides a thoughtful and detailed overview for scholars and students in the history of science, as well as for feminist historians, scientists, and others who want a comparative and historical analysis of women in the sciences."--Jacket
The establishment of science in America : 150 years of the American Association for the Advancement of Science by Sally Gregory Kohlstedt( Book )

"The Establishment of Science in America traces the evolution of the role of scientists in American society, public attitudes toward science, and the changing dimensions of the sponsorship of science and its participants."--Jacket

The origins of natural science in America : the essays of George Brown Goode by G. Brown Goode( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Brown Goode, a nineteenth-century curator and administrator of what would become the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, formulated much of the basis for the science museum system, from broad theoretical issues down to the details of acquisition. This book collects five of Goode's most enduring essays on the history of science and museum practice in America."--BOOK JACKET. "The book opens with a substantive introduction in the form of a biographical essay of Goode by Sally Gregory Kohlstedt, a professor of the history of science. The first of Goode's essays follows: an overview of the development of the natural and, to a lesser extent, physical sciences in America, from colonial times through the late nineteenth century. Through this and the four additional essays, Goode urged the scientific community to preserve a comprehensive and collaborative approach to natural history. He was among the first to establish the concept of a tripartite mission for museums--to act as centers for collection-based research, to educate visitors, and to maintain exhibitions. He believed that in order to understand scientific exhibitions, visitors must be shown historical processes. Science was to be presented within the context of scientific history, a level of information woefully absent from many present-day exhibitions."--BOOK JACKET. "With virtually no historical studies focusing on American science available to guide him, George Brown Goode was determined to compile his own history of natural science. This book brings back into circulation, with the new introduction as well as photographs of thirty naturalists, five essays of lasting relevance to historians, museum professionals, and students of natural history. The Subject Index and Guide to Full Names, Institutions, and Titles provided by Dr. Kohlstedt as a finding list to persons, corporate entities, and works adds a long-sought tool for scholarly research and historical studies."--BOOK JACKET

International science and national scientific identity : Australia between Britain and America by Roderick Weir Home( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The institutionalization of History and Philosophy of Science as a distinct field of scholarly endeavour began comparatively early - though not always under that name - in the Australasian region. An initial lecturing appointment was made at the University of Melbourne immediately after the Second World War, in 1946, and other appointments followed as the subject underwent an expansion during the 1950s and 1960s similar to that which took place in other parts of the world. Today there are major Departments at the University of Melbourne, the University of New South Wales and the University of Wollongong, and smaller groups active in many other parts of Australia and in New Zealand. 'Australasian Studies in History and Philosophy of Science' aims to provide a distinctive publication outlet for Australian and New Zealand scholars working in the general area of history, philosophy and social studies of science. Each volume comprises a group of essays on a connected theme, edited by an Australian or a New Zealander with special expertise in that particular area. Papers address general issues, however, rather than local ones; parochial topics are avoided. Further more, though in each volume a majority of the contributors is from Australia or New Zealand, contributions from elsewhere are by no means ruled out. Quite the reverse, in fact - they are actively encouraged wherever appropriate to the balance of the volume in question
