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

15 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and held by 91 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 sciences and laboratory studies in the history of science

A new reality : human evolution for a sustainable future by Jonas Salk( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new reality: human evolution for a sustainable future provides a startling, fresh new message of understanding, perspective and hope for today's tense, rapid-fire, kaleidoscopically changing world. Drawn from the writings of visionary scientist Jonas Salk, who developed the polio vaccine, and extended and developed by his son Jonathan, the message of A New Reality explodes from the past, and sheds light on tensions that besiege us, and the currents of discord that are raging as these words are written. More importantly, it indicates a way forward out of our current situation. ..." --Publisher description

The science of hope with Jonas Salk( Visual )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(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
American thought by Jonas Salk( Recording )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonas Salk, the discoverer of the Salk polio vaccine, sees America as moving into a closed system, with limited supplies of food, energy, etc. rather than the open one it had been accustomed to. This, he says, calls for new values and a new orientation, with greater emphasis on interdependence and sharing of resources
