Beschreibung

Offers a study of how science bears the marks of its place of production. This title establishes the fundamental importance of geography in both the generation and the consumption of scientific knowledge, using historical examples of the many places where science has been practiced.

David N. Livingstone is professor of geography and intellectual history at Queen's University Belfast. A Fellow of the British Academy and a member of both the Academia Europaea and the Royal Irish Academy, he is the author of numerous books, including The Geographical Tradition: Episodes in the History of a Contested Enterprise and Adam's Ancestors: Race, Religion and the Politics of Human Origins.

"["Putting Science in Its Place"] offers researchers and the public an informative perspective on how space shapes the development and reception of scientific knowledge. Livingstone's concise, eminently readable account unveils the politics of place and demonstrates how geography has made the scientific enterprise a moral undertaking based on trust."--Cristina Gonzalez "Science "
