The creation of scientific effects : Heinrich Hertz and electric waves

Author: Jed Z Buchwald
Publisher: Chicago : University of Chicago Press, ©1994.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : Biography : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book is an attempt to reconstitute the tacit knowledge--the shared, unwritten assumptions, values, and understandings--that shapes the work of science. Jed Z. Buchwald uses as his focus the social and intellectual world of nineteenth-century German physics. Drawing on the lab notes, published papers, and unpublished manuscripts of Heinrich Hertz, Buchwald recreates Hertz's 1887 invention of a device that  Read more...
