A skeptical biochemist by Joseph S Fruton( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An eminent pioneer of modern protein chemistry looks back on six decades in biochemical research and education to advance stimulating thoughts about science--how it is practiced, how it is explained, and how its history is written. Taking the title of his book from Robert Boyle's classic, The Sceptical Chymist (1661), and Joseph Needham's The Sceptical Biologist (1929), Joseph Fruton brings his own skeptical vision to bear on how chemistry and biology interact to describe living systems. Scientists, philosophers, historians, and sociologists will seize upon the questions Fruton raises: What is the nature of the tension between the chemical and the biological sciences? What are the roots and future direction of molecular biology? What is the proper place of expert scientists in the historiography of science? How does the "scientific method" really work in practice? These and many other topics are fair game for this author's wise critiques. In a stimulating final chapter, Fruton analyzes the evolution of key terms and symbols--the conceptual underpinnings--used in the biochemical literature
Proteins, enzymes, genes : the interplay of chemistry and biology by Joseph S Fruton( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book a distinguished scientist-historian offers a critical account of how biochemistry and molecular biology emerged as major scientific disciplines from the interplay of chemical and biological ideas and practice. Joseph S. Fruton traces the historical development of these disciplines from antiquity to the present time, examines their institutional settings, and discusses their impact on medical, pharmaceutical, and agricultural practice

Fermentation : vital or chemical process? by Joseph S Fruton( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human knowledge of the conversion of grape must into wine and of cereal dough into bread is as old as agriculture. This book is a study of the ways this phenomenon (fermentation) has been considered since Aristotle to be analogous to natural processes such as human digestion. During 1200-1600 A.D., alchemists wrote "ferments" or "elixirs" that could turn lead into gold. A century later, in Newton's time, many physicians and natural philosophers considered fermentation to be an important natural process. The 18th century was marked by Lavoisier's celebrated experiment on alcoholic fermentation. The 19th-century debate about the nature of this process was concluded by Buchner's preparation of a active cell-free yeast extract. During 1910-1940 many researchers participated in the identification of the chemical intermediates and catalysts in the multi-enzyme pathway of alcoholic fermentation."--Jacket
