Contrasts in Scientific Style: Research Groups in the Chemical and Biological Sciences (Memoir 191)
Joseph S. Fruton
Joseph S. Fruton, well-known for his biobibliographical vols. on the biochemical sciences, recounts here the various styles of leadership shown by several prominent German chemists & biochemists in research groups during the period 1830 to 1914. Featured particularly are chemists Liebig, Baeyer & Emil Fischer & biochemists Hoppe-Seyler, Kuhne & Hofmeister. Biographical data about their jr. associates are presented in a series of appendices. In a final chapter, Fruton considers the relevance of the conclusions drawn from the style of these 19th- & early 20th-centuy men to the styles of more recent research groups in the chemical & biochemical sciences. Special emphasis is placed on their influence on their scientific progenies in Germany, & in England, Russia, & the U.S. Attention is given not only to the individual contributions of the junior members of these scientific groups to the growth of knowledge within their disciplines, but also the the devt. of university ed., medical & agricultural research, & industrial practice in their respective countries.
