Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This book advocates a radical shift of concern in philosophical, historical, and sociological studies of the sciences, and explores the consequences of such a shift. It is argued that recent studies in the sociology and social history of the sciences pose strong challenges by revealing how appeals to authority, vested interests, and rhetorical and aesthetic sensibilities play substantial roles in scientific practices.
