Intelligentsia Science by Michael D. Gordin
Book DescriptionThe newest annual volume of "Osiris, Intelligentsia Science" explores the transformations in science in the history of Russia and the Soviet Union, from serfdom to Sputnik, as a series of developments in Russian culture.The contributors argue that it was the generation of the 1860s that transformed "intelligentsia" into a central notion of Russian popular discourse, cementing its association with revolutionary politics - and with science. Science became the cornerstone of the intelligentsia's ideological and political projects, either as an alternative to socialism, or more often as its nominal raison d'etre. The Russian century may in fact be over, but the interrelation of the intelligentsia and science to form "intelligentsia science" proves enduring.

Pseudoscience Wars, Paperback (August 2013)
Resurrects the largely forgotten figure of Velikovsky and uses his strange career and surprisingly influential writings to explore the changing definitions of the line that separates legitimate scientific inquiry from what is deemed bunk and to show how vital this question remains to us today.
Utopia/Dystopia, Paperback (August 2010)» View all books by Michael D. Gordin
The concepts of utopia and dystopia have received much historical attention. Utopias have traditionally signified the ideal future: large-scale social, political, ethical, and religious spaces that have yet to be realized. This title offers a fresh approach to these ideas.
