Shapin claims that there was no such thing as the "Scientific Revolution," neither as a coherent chronological event nor as a movement in science. Instead he writes about how reformed practices of making the same observations led to the creation of "new" ideas.

Men inherit definitions about manhood, but many of these definitions no longer fit. A society that was once based on power, assumptions, and stereotypes is changing. Few people take time to learn about the history of male oppression, the foundations of masculinity, and the evolution of the modern man. Join author Rod E. Keays as he examines these important topics and more, including why boys and men accept certain roles; why men bully each other; why its important to deal with emotions; and why its so hard for men to talk about intimacy. Keays explores his own experiences coping with the twists and turns that come with being a man. One thing he learns early on is that most men dont talk about their emotional highs and lows. As someone who likes to talk openly and frankly, he has felt isolated, but he continues living life on his terms. Discover what good men have been doing for thousands of years and how mens groups can help men achieve their goals. The world may have its share of problems, but The Naturally Good Man continues to contribute to society.

Arguably 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. "A standard introduction to historically minded scholars interested in the constructivist programme. In fact, it has been called the 'constructivist's bible' in many a conference corridor."—Matthew Eddy, British Journal for the History of Science

A comprehensive account of knowledge of the natural world in Europe, ca.1500-1700. Often referred to as the Scientific Revolution, this period saw major transformations in fields as diverse as anatomy and astronomy, natural history and mathematics. Articles by leading specialists describe in clear, accessible prose supplemented by extensive bibliographies, how new ideas, discoveries, and institutions shaped the ways in which nature came to be studied, understood, and used. Part I frames the study of 'The New Nature' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Part II surveys the 'Personae and Sites of Natural Knowledge'. Part III treats the study of nature by discipline, following the classification of the sciences current in early modern Europe. Part IV takes up the implications of the new natural knowledge for religion, literature, art, gender, and European identity

»Wissenschaftliche Revolution«, das meint die Durchsetzung neuer Formen von Erkenntnisansprüchen, Theorien und experimentellen Praktiken an der Schwelle zur Neuzeit: nicht nur die Herausbildung einer mathematisierten Physik, die lange Zeit als das Paradigma der neuzeitlichen Wissenschaft galt, sondern auch das Aufkommen neuartiger Wissenschaftsprogramme, Techniken der Beobachtung und der kontrollierbaren Herstellung von Phänomenen auf den verschiedensten Wissensgebieten. Steven Shapins Buch ist eine materialreiche, überaus prägnante Darstellung dieses keineswegs plötzlichen, revolutionären Umbruchs, die insbesondere die gesellschaftlichen Kontexte der »neuen Wissenschaft« beleuchtet und eine ausgezeichnete Einführung in dieses facettenreiche Thema bietet. Sie liefert einen hervorragenden Überblick, der durch einen ausführlichen »bibliographischen Essay« – ein Leitfaden durch die Literatur – noch an Wert gewinnt.

The world around us is continually being shaped by science, and by society's relationship to it. In recent years sociologists have been increasingly preoccupied with the latter, and now in this fascinating book, Massimiano Bucchi provides a brief introduction to this topical issue. Bucchi provides clear and unassuming summaries of all the major theoretical positions within the sociology of science, illustrated with many fascinating examples. Theories covered include Thomas Kuhn's theory of scientific change, the sociology of scientific knowledge, actor-network theory, and the social construction of technology. The second half of the book looks at recent public controversies over the role of science in the modern world including: * the Sokal affair, otherwise known as the science wars * debates over public understanding of science, such as global warming and genetically modified food * the implications of the human genome project. This much needed introduction to a rapidly growing area brings theory alive and will be essential reading for all students of the sociology of science.
