Modern science has become the only generally recognized cognitive authority in the modern world, yet Western science and technology are contributing to a society whose long-term sustainability is in doubt

Modern science has become the only generally recognized cognitive authority in the modern world, yet Western science and technology are contributing to a society whose long-term sustainability is in doubt. Thus a crucial question becomes, "How can inquiry in the scientific spirit be so modified (in epistemology or more fundamentally) that it more completely serves the highest needs of humanity?". Most scientists assume that the epistemological question has been settled long ago in the definition of "scientific method

David Knight's latest book is a glittering magnum opus in which he describes the professionalization of science by drawing on examples from various disciplines. The writing is erudite, lucid and upbeat. The book is a social history, an institutional history and an internal history all in one, and it is gratifying to see chemistry assuming a rather central position in the story. Eric Scerri, author of The Periodic Table, Its Story and Its Significance. This book is a pleasure to read: light in style, yet incisive, informative, and even profound

Of all the inventions of the nineteenth century, the scientist isone of the most striking. In revolutionary France the sciencestudent, taught by men active in research, was born; and ageneration later, the graduate student doing a PhD emerged inGermany. In 1833 the word ‘scientist’ was coined; fortyyears later science (increasingly specialised) was a becoming aprofession. Men of science rivalled clerics and critics as sages;they were honoured as national treasures, and buried in statefunerals. Their new ideas invigorated the life of the mind.Peripatetic congresses, great exhibitions, museums, technicalcolleges and laboratories blossomed; and new industries based onchemistry and electricity brought prosperity and power, economicand military. Eighteenth-century steam engines precededunderstanding of the physics underlying them; but electrictelegraphs and motors were applied science, based upon painstakinginterpretation of nature. The ideas, discoveries and inventions ofscientists transformed the world: lives were longer and healthier,cities and empires grew, societies became urban rather thanagrarian, the local became global. And by the opening years of thetwentieth century, science was spreading beyond Europe and NorthAmerica, and women were beginning to be visible in the ranks ofscientists. Bringing together the people, events, and discoveries of thisexciting period into a lively narrative, this book will beessential reading both for students of the history of science andfor anyone interested in the foundations of the world as we know ittoday.
