Why are there so few ladies in technological know-how? In Breaking into the Lab, Sue Rosser makes use of the reports of profitable ladies scientists and engineers to reply to the query of why elite associations have so few ladies scientists and engineers tenured on their schools. ladies are hugely certified, inspired scholars, and but they've got enormously greater charges of attrition, and they're shying clear of the fields with the Read more...

The nice biologist Louis Pasteur suppressed 'awkward' information since it did not help the case he used to be making. John Snow, the 'first epidemiologist' was once doing not anything others had now not performed ahead of. Gregor Mendel, the meant 'founder of genetics' by no means grasped the elemental rules of 'Mendelian' genetics.

During this fascinating ebook, the most highly-regarded scientist- theologians of our time deals a thought-provoking exploration of the interplay among technology and theology. John Polkinghorne defends where of theology within the college, discusses the position of revelation in faith, and focuses heavily on reconciling what technological know-how can say concerning the strategies of the universe with theology's trust in a God energetic inside construction.

Get James Joseph Sylvester: Life and Work in Letters PDF

Within the folklore of arithmetic, James Joseph Sylvester (1814-1897) is the eccentric, hot-tempered, sword-cane-wielding, nineteenth-century British Jew who, including the taciturn Arthur Cayley, constructed a idea and language of invariants that then died spectacularly within the Eighteen Nineties because of David Hilbert's groundbreaking, `modern' suggestions.

Seduced by Science: How American Religion Has Lost Its Way by Steven Goldberg PDF

American faith, Steven Goldberg claims, has fallen right into a capture. simply in the mean time whilst it has collected the political energy and received the criminal correct to take part successfully in public debate, it has misplaced its specific voice. rather than conversing of human values, targets, and boundaries, it speaks within the language of technological know-how.

Example text

His secretary, my age and also pregnant with her first child, and I eventually pieced together that anger toward his wife about her pregnancy provided the source of the inappropriate, negative comments he had directed at each of us throughout our pregnancies. This became particularly evident as the birth times (all within two months) approached, and he began to talk about feeling abandoned by everyone. Since he had a lab full of technicians, grad students, and another postdoc, the secretary and I couldn’t imagine what he meant until we realized that all of them were male.

He told me that I was trained as a research scientist and that I would be making a big mistake to go into something as faddish as women’s studies. When I told him that I was finding my role as a laboratory scientist increasingly incompatible with my role as a mother, citing the incident of the phone call when I was out nursing the baby, he told me that I had over-reacted to his remarks. The irrationality of his response and failure to discuss the problem and possible solutions convinced me even more that I needed to get out.

It is not surprising that I have mixed feelings about science and it partially explains why relatively early in my career I left bench science, at which I excelled and found pleasure, to pursue social studies of science. Does this harassing behavior still occur? Today, some 35–40 years later, most institutions in academia, government, and industry have sexual harassment policies firmly in place. Although enforcement of these policies and meaningful sanctions against harassers leave substantial room for improvement, such blatant harassment appears to be less common or receives immediate attention and sanctions, as in the case involving the Physics Department at Duke University (Wilson 2004).
