Hidden Histories of Science (New York Review of Books Collections Series)by Jonathan Miller, Robert B. Silvers, Oliver Sacks, R. C. Lewontin, Daniel J. Kevles
In these essays, Jonathan Miller, Oliver Sacks and Daniel Kevles show how and why some discoveries and insights in science emerge with great promise, only to be discarded or forgotten, then re-emerge years later as important. Richard Lewontin and Stephen Jay Gould suggest deep and largely unacknowledged distortions in the way scientists and popularizers alike conceive the sturcture of the world and its natural history. Illustrations.
