Laboratory life : the construction of scientific facts by Bruno Latour( )

6 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly original work presents laboratory science in a deliberately skeptical way: as an anthropological approach to the culture of the scientist. Drawing on recent work in literary criticism, the authors study how the social world of the laboratory produces papers and other ""texts,""' and how the scientific vision of reality becomes that set of statements considered, for the time being, too expensive to change. The book is based on field work done by Bruno Latour in Roger Guillemin's laboratory at the Salk Institute and provides an important link between the sociology of modern scienc

(Producer) Jonas Salk is the developer of the polio vaccine and founder of the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California. He talks about AIDS research and how the technique of "negotiating" with the AIDS virus offers a way of thinking about human beings as "part of, not apart from" nature. Salk feels the development of an AIDS vaccine is just a matter of time and it is just a matter of strategy. Solutions come through asking the right question, because the answer pre-exists. It is the question that we have to define and discover. You don't invent the answer, you reveal the answer
