Gavroglu K., Renn J. (eds.) Positioning the History of Science
Springer, 2007. - 188 pp.
The present volume, compiled in honor of an outstanding historian of science, physicist and exceptional human being, Sam Schweber, is unique in assembling a broad spectrum of positions on the history of science by some of its leading representatives. Readers will find it illuminating to learn how prominent authors judge the current status and the future perspectives of their field. Students will find this volume helpful as a guide in a fragmented field that continues to be dominated by idiosyncratic expertise and that still lacks a methodical canon. The essays were written in response to the invitation to explicate the views of the authors concerning the state of the history of science today and the issues related to its future. This volume can be considered as a rather comprehensive survey of the present state of the history of science.
