The concept of the gene in development and evolution : historical and epistemological perspectives( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 435 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
A cultural history of heredity by Staffan Müller-Wille( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and German and held by 415 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
Heredity produced : at the crossroads of biology, politics, and culture, 1500-1870( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 334 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
On historicizing epistemology : an essay by Hans-Jörg Rheinberger( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and German and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows how, from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth century, the philosophy of science was increasingly confronted with historical questions and how it became historicized accordingly
Toward a history of epistemic things : synthesizing proteins in the test tube by Hans-Jörg Rheinberger( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this powerful work of conceptual and analytical originality, the author argues for the primacy of the material arrangements of the laboratory in the dynamics of modern molecular biology. In a post-Kuhnian move away from the hegemony of theory, he develops a new epistemology of experimentation in which research is treated as a process for producing epistemic things

"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."--Jacket
Reworking the bench : research notebooks in the history of science by Frederic Lawrence Holmes( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 142 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

Experimental systems : future knowledge in artistic research by Michael Schwab( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 89 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 )

13 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 76 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 and makes one of contemporary criticism's most indispensable works even more accessible and usable
