Servants of Nature: A History of Scientific, Institutions, Enterprises & Sensibilities
Lewis Pyenson & Susan Sheets-Pyenson. Major scientific advances stem from changes in 3 areas: the social institutions that promote science, the sensibilities of scientists themselves, & the goal of the scientific enterprise. Examining the institutions that have shaped science -- the academies of Ancient Greece, universities, the growth of museums of science, technology & natural history, botanical & zoological gardens, & the advent of modern specialized research labs -- this volume also analyses changing scientific sensibilities through time, such as the relationship between religion & science or the interplay between the growth of democracy & the growth of scientific knowledge. Covers the changing nature of scientific enterprise & considers how the goals of science have evolved.
