Nuevas perspectivas sobre el papel de los manuales en la historia de la ciencia

La serie Themes de la revista British Journal of History of Science acaba de publicar un dossier sobre el papel desempeñado por los libros de texto y los manuales en la transmisión de los conocimientos científicos a lo largo de la historia en diversas civilizaciones y distintas épocas.

Dado su interés para quienes se interesan, -nos interesamos-, por la ciencia en las aulas, me parece pertinente hacerme eco del mencionado dossier

“Learning by the Book: Handbooks and Manuals in the History of Science”

Angela N. H. Creager, Mathias Grote and Elaine Leong (guest editors)

Simon Werrett (series editor)

ISSN: 2058-850X, EISSN: 2056-354X

open access, online only

Authors: Karine Chemla (Paris), Angela N.H. Creager (Princeton), Stephanie A. Dick (University of Pennsylvania), Boris Jardine (Cambridge), Mathias Grote (HU Berlin), Marta Hanson (Johns Hopkins), Elaine Leong (UCL), Federico Marcon (Princeton), Matteo Martelli (Bologna), Anna-Maria Meister (TU Darmstadt), Staffan Müller-Wille (Cambridge) & Giuditta Parolini (TU Berlin), Jennifer Rampling (Princeton)

This volume shows how manuals and handbooks have contributed to the standardization, codification, transmission and revision of knowledge in diverse times and places, such as ancient Greece, China and early modern Europe, as well as modern contexts worldwide. Touching upon problems of innovation, authorship and publishing, this collection offers a new perspective on how the history of science, medicine and technology relates to that of books and media. The contributors not only show how practitioners learn new methods, from alchemical recipes to gene cloning, but also how knowledge can become old in different ways, such as by becoming generally accepted, revised, or antiquated.
