Sociology of Science

June 24, 2006

One of the few interesting posts I stumbled across in my aggregator today. Sometimes I get really tired of people blogging about blogging, which I guess has it’s own sociology. 🙂

Sociology of Science

Raymond Aron says somewhere that "science is inseparable from the republic of scholars." This is substantially true, though I can imagine odd exceptions. (R. Crusoe, FRS, could have done astronomy or botany or algebra before meeting Friday, though I don’t think he could have invented them.) In any event, science is an activity which groups do vastly better, and easier, than isolated individuals.
