"A fine treatment of this critical time in geology's history. Although it goes against our standard histories of the field, Laudan defends her views convincingly. Her style is direct, with carefully reasoned personal opinions and interpretations clearly defined."--Jere H. Lipps, "The Scientist"
Rachel Laudan teaches history of science at the University of Hawaii. She is editor of "The Nature of Technological Knowledge" (1985) and, with A. Donovan and L. Laudan, "Scrutinizing Science" (1988). She is currently working on the development of the concept of scientific progress.
