Making Natural Knowledge by Jan Golinski
Book DescriptionArguably the best available introduction to constructivism, a research paradigm that has dominated the history of science for the past forty years, "Making Natural Knowledge" reflects on the importance of this theory, tells the history of its rise to prominence, and traces its most important tensions. Viewing scientific knowledge as a product of human culture, Jan Golinski challenges the traditional trajectory of the history of science as steady and autonomous progress. In exploring topics such as the social identity of the scientist, the significance of places where science is practiced, and the roles played by language, instruments, and images, "Making Natural Knowledge" sheds new light on the relations between science and other cultural domains.

British Weather and the Climate of Enlightenment, Paperback (November 2011)
Enlightenment inquiries into weather sought to impose order on a force that had the power to alter human life and social conditions. This title reveals how a sense of the national climate emerged in the 18th century from the systematic recording of the weather, and how it was deployed in discussions of the health and welfare of the population.
