Real science : what it is, and what it means by J. M Ziman( Book )

43 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scientists and 'anti-scientists' alike need a more realistic image of science. The traditional mode of research, academic science, is not just a 'method': it is a distinctive culture, whose members win esteem and employment by making public their findings. Fierce competition for credibility is strictly regulated by established practices such as peer review. Highly specialized international communities of independent experts form spontaneously and generate the type of knowledge we call 'scientific' - systematic, theoretical, empirically tested, quantitative, and so on. Ziman shows that these familiar 'philosophical' features of scientific knowledge are inseparable from the ordinary cognitive capabilities and peculiar social relationships of its producers. This wide angled close-up of the natural and human sciences recognizes their unique value, whilst revealing the limits of their rationality, reliability and universal applicability. It also shows how, for better or worse, the new 'post-academic' research culture of teamwork, accountability, etc. is changing these supposedly eternal philosophical characteristics."--Jacket

The Physics of metals: by P. B Hirsch( Book )

51 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Physics of Metals is an advanced treatise written by a team of experts. It presents an authoritative account of selected topics in a major field of modern physics and will prove indispensable to both experimental and theoretical solid state physicists and metallurgists seeking a clear explanation of the state of knowledge of the physical phenomena occurring in metals, without recourse to elaborate mathematics. The whole work was inspired by the desire to honour Sir Nevill Mott by writing an account of some of the topics treated in Mott and Jones's classic work The Theory of the Properties of Metals and Alloys

36 editions published between 1962 and 1970 in English and Chinese and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Puzzles, problems and enigmas : occasional pieces on the human aspects of science by J. M Ziman( Book )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophical puzzles, political problems, ethical enigmas - science has them all. Do some theories stink? Is research a gentlemanly art or a tough professional game? What happens to scientists who go gaga? Can scientific knowledge be treated as a commercial commodity? How can research be made relevant to national development? Is war good for physics? What should scientists do about Soviet dissidents? How does information become knowledge? Why bother about examinations? These and many other topics on the human side of science are discussed in this wide-ranging book, originally published in 1981. As an experienced theoretical physicist, Professor Ziman speaks about science from the inside. As a long-time advocate of social responsibility in science, technology and education, he looks critically into science from the outside. He exposes for the layman, with wit and nerve, some of the most challenging issues of the time
