About this book

Eleven leading historians of science assess what their field has taught us about this exciting time and identify issues that remain unexamined or require reconsideration. They treat both scientific disciplines - biology, physics, chemistry, the earth sciences, mathematics, and the social sciences - in their specific intellectual and socio-cultural contexts as well as the broader topics of science and medicine; science and religion; scientific institutions and communities; and science, technology, and industry.

All essays have been written by acknowledged experts. They are of high quality, very informative and will serve as excellent introductions to the field in question.--Rienk Vermij "Ambix "
