Scientists and other keen observers of the natural world sometimes make or write a statement pertaining to scientific activity that is destined to live on beyond the brief period of time for which it was intended. This book serves as a collection of these statements from great philosophers and thought-influencers of science, past and present. It allows the reader quickly to find relevant quotations or citations. Organized thematically and indexed alphabetically by author, this work makes readily available an unprecedented collection of approximately 21,000 quotations related to a broad range of scientific topics.
From the reviews: "This ! dictionary of 18,000 quotations encompasses all areas of science. ! the work grew from the authors' frustration at the difficulty of finding quotations about statistics. ! this new work is larger and easier to use when looking for a subject rather than an author. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." (S. K. Oelker, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008) "It is a thoroughly good and worthwhile reference work ! . Gaither's Dictionary of Scientific Quotations is a fine resource that will add to any reference collection. It contains many quotations, hard to find elsewhere, in a potentially very useful arrangement. It is well-produced, clearly laid out in a double column format ! ." (Barry White, Reference Reviews, Vol. 22 (8), 2008)
