Description
How is scientific knowledge created? Not simply by accumulating facts or testing hypotheses, argues Martin J. S. Rudwick. In his landmark study of the Great Devonian Controversy of the 1830s and 1840s, he shows that new knowledge is the product of intense rhetorical argument among a small group of gifted, dogged, ambitious researchers. As the most thorough description yet written of the way scientific communities formulate, debate, and resolve their problems, this book is an essential case study for historians, sociologists, and philosophers of science.
