On historicizing epistemology an essay by Hans-Jörg Rheinberger( )

Reworking the bench research notebooks in the history of science by Frederic Lawrence Holmes( )
16 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Research records composed of notes and protocols have long played a role in the efforts to understand the origins of what have come to be seen as the established milestones in the development of modern science. The use of research records to probe the nature of scientific investigation itself however is a recent development in the history of science. With Eduard Dijksterhuis, we could address them as a veritable "epistemologiCal laboratory". The purpose of a workshop entitled "Reworking the Bench: Laboratory Notebooks in the History of Science", held at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin was to bring together historians who have been exploiting such resources, to compare the similarities and differences in the materials they had used and and to measure the potential and scope for future explorations of "science in the making" based on such forms of documentation. The contributions which form this volume are based on papers presented at this workshop or written afterward by participants in the discussions. This is the first book that addresses the issue of research notes for writing history of science in a comprehensive manner. Its case studies range from the early modern period to present and cover a broad range of different disciplines
Heredity produced : at the crossroads of biology, politics, and culture, 1500-1870 ( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The cultural history of heredity: scholars from a range of disciplines discuss the evolution of the concept of heredity, from the Early Modern understanding of the act of 'generation' to its later 19th century definition as the transmission of characteristics across generations
From molecular genetics to genomics the mapping cultures of twentieth-century genetics ( )
7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the rise of genomics, the life sciences have entered a new era. This book provides a comprehensive history of molecular genetics and genomics
A cultural history of heredity by Staffan Müller-Wille( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It was only around 1800 that heredity began to enter debates among physicians, breeders, and naturalists. Soon thereafter it evolved into one of the most fundamental concepts of biology. Here Staffan Müller-Wille and Hans-Jörg Rheinberger offer a succinct cultural history of the scientific concept of heredity. They outline the dramatic changes the idea has undergone since the early modern period and describe the political and technological developments that brought about these changes. Müller-Wille and Rheinberger begin with an account of premodern theories of generation, showing that these were concerned with the procreation of individuals rather than with hereditary transmission. The authors reveal that when hereditarian thinking first emerged, it did so in a variety of cultural domains, such as politics and law, medicine, natural history, breeding, and anthropology. Müller-Wille and Rheinberger then track theories of heredity from the late nineteenth century--when leading biologists considered it in light of growing societal concerns with race and eugenics--through the rise of classical and molecular genetics in the twentieth century, to today, as researchers apply sophisticated information technologies to understand heredity ... What readers come to see from this exquisite history is why it took such a long time for heredity to become a prominent concept in the life sciences and why it gained such overwhelming importance in those sciences and the broader culture over the last two centuries."--Jacket
The concept of the gene in development and evolution : historical and epistemological perspectives ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume provides evidence of the diversity of scientific disciplines that presently have a stake in the quest for the gene. The essays here offer challenging perspectives on some of the most fundamental concepts of twentieth-century biology. Conceptual perspectives about the gene as it is presently known provide the substance of three contributions. The examination of pre-Darwinian heredity concepts, Goldschmidt's demission of the gene, and Seymour Benzer's work on the fine structure of the gene are also explored. A critique of the "genetic program" is presented as well as modern findings about the functioning of "master genes' during embryogenesis. In the final essay, Raphael Falk reviews the material laid out in this volume. This book should be of interest to professionals and students of philosophy and the history of science, genetics, and molecular biology
Toward a history of epistemic things : synthesizing proteins in the test tube by Hans-Jörg Rheinberger( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These epistemological and historical issues are illuminated in a detailed case study of a particular laboratory, that of the oncologist and biochemist Paul C. Zamecnik and his colleagues, located in a specific setting - the Collis P. Huntington Memorial Hospital of Harvard University at the Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston. The author traces how, between 1945 and 1965, this group developed an experimental system for synthesizing proteins in the test tube that put Zamecnik's research team at the forefront of those who led biochemistry into the era of molecular biology
An epistemology of the concrete : twentieth-century histories of life by Hans-Jörg Rheinberger( Book )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
<DIV>An exploration of 20th century scientific discourse, focusing on experimental models in genetics and microbiology.</div>
Classical genetic research and its legacy : the mapping cultures of twentieth-century genetics ( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With the rise of genomics, the life sciences have entered a new era. Maps of genomes have become the icons for a comprehensive knowledge of the organism on a previously unattained level of complexity. This book provides an in-depth history of mapping procedures as they were developed in classical genetics." "With its detailed analyses of scientific practices and its illustration of the diversity of mapping, this book is a significant contribution to the history of genetics."--BOOK JACKET

Experimental systems : future knowledge in artistic research ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We don't know what we don't know. This makes it difficult to imagine research that will produce truly new knowledge. In the sciences, the experimental approach has proved its worth in generating what subsequently requires understanding. Can the emergent field of artistic research be inspired by recent thinking about the history and workings of science? How can artists engage with experimentation to extend artistic values and deliver future knowledge? In this book fourteen contemporary artists, musicians, and theorists engage with Hans-Jorg Rheinberger's widely studied theory of experimental systems in an effort to determine how experimentation can productively be put to work in the arts. An interview with Rheinberger himself probes research as a potentially shared space between the otherwise different activities of art and science
Of grammatology by Jacques Derrida( Book )
12 editions published between 1974 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jacques Derrida's revolutionary theories about deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and structuralism, first voiced in the 1960s, forever changed the face of European and American criticism. The ideas in De la grammatologie sparked lively debates in intellectual circles that included students of literature, philosophy, and the humanities, inspiring these students to ask questions of their disciplines that had previously been considered improper. Thirty years later, the immense influence of Derrida's work is still igniting controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Spivak's translation, which captures the richness and complexity of the original. This corrected edition adds a new index of the critics and philosophers cited in the text. --From publisher's description
