Reworking the bench research notebooks in the history of science by Frederic Lawrence Holmes ( )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 678 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

A cultural history of heredity by Staffan Müller-Wille ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 398 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
Science and the life-world : essays on Husserl's Crisis of European sciences by David Jalal Hyder ( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 313 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

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 243 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
