Dear Reader,
Welcome to our latest catalogue devoted to the history and
philosophy of science. This is a rapidly-growing part of
our publishing. We retain our strong commitment to our
well-established series such as Science and Culture in the
Nineteenth Century (see pages 37) and also to our series
with the Society for the Social History of Medicine (see pages
1112). I think you will see how well-received these books have
been from the excellent review quotes we have been able to
include in these pages. I am confdent that the titles due for
publication in these series will also receive a similar reception.
All these books go through a rigorous peer review process
which ensures that the published volumes are of the highest
quality.
We also have a number of new series with a strong focus on
the philosophy of science such as: History and Philosophy of
Technoscience and History and Philosophy of Biology. These
new series will be of interest not only to philosophers but to
historians and practitioners of science.
In addition to our monograph programme we also have some
new and exciting primary source collections. Our Selected
Correspondence of William Huggins is newly published, while
2015 will also see the frst volumes of our major new project,
The Correspondence of John Tyndall which will be published
serially in some sixteen volumes.
Whatever your area of research I am sure that you will fnd
something of value in these pages. I would also be delighted
to hear from you with any suggestions for new works to add to
our ever-growing list.

Victorian Literature and the
Physics of the Imponderable
Sarah C Alexander
The Victorians were obsessed with
the empirical but were frequently
frustrated by the sizeable gaps in
their understanding of the world
around them. This study examines
how literature and popular culture
adopted the newly-emergent language
of physics to explain the unknown
or imponderable. The works of
key scientists such as John Tyndall,
George Henry Lewes and Auguste
Comte are discussed and set in the
context of a developing modern
society. This raises important parallels
with contemporary issues surrounding
scientifc developments such as the
Higgs boson or God Particle.

Adolphe Quetelet, Social
Physics and the Average Men
of Science, 17961874
Kevin Donnelly
Adolphe Quetelet was an infuential
scientist whose controversial work on
social physics was praised by American
reformers, but condemned by John
Stuart Mill. His long and distinguished
career brought him into contact with
many of the Victorian intellectual elite,
including Goethe, Malthus, Babbage,
Herschel and Faraday. His theories
even inspired Dostoyevsky to write
Crime and Punishment. Donnelly
presents the frst scholarly biography
of Quetelet, exploring his contribution
to quantitative reasoning and his place
in nineteenth-century intellectual
history.

Astronomy in India,
17841876
Joydeep Sen
Indian scientifc achievements in
the early twentieth century are
well known, with a number of
heralded individuals making globally
recognized strides in the feld of
astrophysics. Covering the period
from the foundation of the Asiatick
Society in 1784 to the establishment
of the Indian Association for the
Cultivation of Science in 1876, Sen
explores the relationship between
Indian astronomers and the colonial
British. He shows that from the mid-
nineteenth century, Indians were
not passive receivers of European
knowledge, but active participants
in modern scientifc observational
astronomy.

Uncommon Contexts:
Encounters between Science and
Literature, 18001914
Editors: Ben Marsden, Hazel
Hutchison and Ralph OConnor
Britain in the long nineteenth century
developed an increasing interest in
science of all kinds. The essays in
this collection uncover the symbiotic
relationship between literature and
science. Specifc case studies include
the engineering language used by
Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the role
of physiology in the development of
the sensation novel and how mass
communication made people lonely.
The contributions collectively
explore and analyze a wide range
of manifestations of the mutual
engagement of literature and science
during the longer nineteenth century.

The Medical Trade Catalogue
in Britain, 18701914
Claire L Jones
By the late nineteenth century,
advances in medical knowledge,
technology and pharmaceuticals
led to the development of a thriving
commercial industry. The medical
trade catalogue became one of the
most important means of promoting
the latest tools and techniques to
practitioners. Drawing on over 400
catalogues produced between 1870
and 1914, Jones presents a study
of the changing nature of medical
professionalism. She examines the
use of the catalogue in connecting
the previously separate worlds of
medicine and commerce and discusses
its importance to the study of print
history more widely.

The Making of Modern
Anthrax, 18751920: Uniting
Local, National and Global Histories of
Disease
James F Stark
From the mid-nineteenth century
onwards a number of previously
unknown conditions were recorded in
both animals and humans. Known by a
variety of names, and found in diverse
locations, by the end of the century
these diseases were united under the
banner of anthrax. Stark offers a fresh
perspective on the history of infectious
disease. He examines anthrax in
terms of local, national and global
signifcance, and constructs a narrative
that spans public, professional and
geographic domains.

Science and Societies in
Frankfurt am Main
Ayako Sakurai
The nineteenth century saw science
move from being the preserve of a
small learned elite to a dominant
force which infuenced society as
a whole. Sakurai presents a study
of how scientifc societies affected
the social and political life of a city.
As it did not have a university or a
centralized government, Frankfurt
am Main is an ideal case study of how
scientifc associations funded by
private patronage for the good of the
local populace became an important
centre for natural history.

James Sumner
How did the brewing of beer become
a scientifc process? Sumner explores
this question by charting the theory
and practice of the trade in Britain
and Ireland during the eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries.
From an oral culture derived
from home-based skills, brewing
industrialized rapidly and developed
an extensive trade literature, based
increasingly on the authority of
chemical experiment. The role of
taxation is also examined, and the
emergence of brewing as a profession
is set within its social and technical
context.

Anthropology, 18131871
Efram Sera-Shriar
Victorian anthropology has been
derided as an armchair practice,
distinct from the scientifc discipline

argues that anthropology at this time
went through a process of innovation
which built on scientifcally grounded
observational study. Far from being
an evolutionary dead end, nineteenth-
century anthropology laid the
foundations for the feld-based science
of anthropology today.

Smith takes an in-depth look at the
problem of free will through the prism
of different disciplines. Physiology,
psychology, philosophy, evolutionary
theory, ethics, history and sociology all
played a part in the debates that took
place. His subtly nuanced navigation
through these arguments has much

Vision, Science and
Literature, 18701920:
Ocular Horizons
Martin Willis
Willis explores the role of vision and
the culture of observation in Victorian
and modernist ways of seeing. He
charts the characterization of vision
through four organizing principles
small, large, past and future to
survey Victorian conceptions of what
vision was. He then explores how this
Victorian vision infuenced twentieth-
century ways of seeing, when
anxieties over visual truth became
entwined with modernist rejections of
objectivity.
Willis shows both scientists and
novelists at their most human, both
driven by wonder and rigor, method
and imagination. Review 19

Victorian Britain:

Ian Hesketh
New attitudes towards history
in nineteenth-century Britain
saw a rejection of romantic,
literary techniques in favour
of a professionalized, scientifc
methodology. The development of
history as a scientifc discipline was
undertaken by several key historians
of the Victorian period, infuenced
by German scientifc history and
British natural philosophy. Hesketh
examines parallels between the
professionalization of both history
and science at the time and challenges
accepted notions of a single scientifc
approach to history.

Medicine and Modernism:
A Biography of Henry Head
L S Jacyna
This is the frst in-depth study of the
English neurologist and polymath
Sir Henry Head (18611940). Head
bridged the gap between science and
the arts. He was a published poet who
had close links with such fgures as
Thomas Hardy and Siegfried Sassoon,
whilst his research into the nervous
system and the relationship between
language and the brain broke new
ground. Jacyna argues that these
advances must be contextualized
within wider Modernist debates about
perception and language.

The Mysterious Science of the
Sea, 17751943
Natascha Adamowsky
The depths of the oceans are the
last example of terra incognita on
earth. Adamowsky presents a study
of the sea, arguing that contrary to
popular belief post-Enlightenment
discourse on the sea was still subject to
mystery and wonder, and not wholly
rationalized by science. She portrays
the sea as a theatre of mystery,
accessible only with considerable
technological effort. It is this
unknowable quality which locates the
sea at the intersection between science
and our imagination.

The Future of Scientifc
Practice: Bio-Techno-Logos
Editor: Marta Bertolaso
Focusing on cell dynamics,
molecular medicine and robotics,
contributors explore the interplay
between biological, technological and
theoretical ways of thinking. They
argue that the direction of modern
science means that these areas can no
longer be explored independently but
must be integrated if we are to better
understand the world. The collection
makes a strong contribution to current
debates in the philosophy of science
and the changing role of scientifc
practice.

Spaceship Earth in the
Environmental Age,
19601990
Sabine Hhler
Spaceship Earth was a key metaphor
in the late twentieth-century debate
over the worlds resources and the
future of humankind. This idea of
the earth as a vessel in space came
of age in an era shaped by space
travel and the Cold War. Hhlers
study innovatively brings together
technology, science and ecology
to explore the way this latter-day
ark was invoked by politicians,
environmentalists, cultural historians,
writers of science fction and many
others across three decades.

Experiments in Practice
Astrid Schwarz
Traditionally experimentation has
been understood as an activity
performed within the laboratory,
but in the twenty-frst century this
view is being challenged. Schwarz
uses ecological and environmental
case studies to show how scientifc
experiments can transcend the
laboratory. She explores the historical
development of the concept of
experimentation and argues that it is
time for us to rethink the traditional
Baconian view. The study offers
insights into the epistemological,
metaphysical and ethical implications
of extending the concept of the
experiment, as well as its effect on
the relationship between science and
society.

involves dealing with all kinds of
errors and uncertainties, yet there
is signifcant variance in how such
results are dealt with. Contributors
to this volume present case studies
of research practices across a wide

experimental physics, econometrics,
environmental science, climate
science, engineering, measurement
science and statistics. They compare
methodologies and present the
ingredients needed for an overarching
framework applicable to all.

The Biological Foundations
of Action
Derek M Jones
Jones presents an innovative study
into the role of action as distinct
from mere movement in the natural
world. He argues that an organisms
behaviour must always have its roots
in some form of need, but that action
based on need alone is not agency.
Primitive (non-intentional) action
in humans is discussed as a form of
agency common to many organisms
an area of overlap neglected in
recent scholarship. This intersectional
approach makes an important
contribution to current philosophical
debate on the nature and origins of
agency.

Romantic Biology, 18901945
Maurizio Esposito
Organismal biology is an established
scholarly discipline, yet its origins
have been obscured by Darwinian
histories of biology. Emerging
over the late nineteenth and early
twentieth centuries, organismal
biology stemmed not from the work of
Darwin and his circle, but was inspired
by Romantic natural philosophers,
embryologists, anatomists and
physiologists. Esposito presents
a historiography of organicist
and holistic thought through an
examination of the work of leading
biologists from Britain (Haldane,
Thompson, Russell and Woodger)
and America (Ritter, Child, Lillie and
Just). He shows how this work relates
to earlier Romantic thought and sets it
within the wider context of the history
and philosophy of the life sciences.

Galileo and the Confict
between Religion and Science
Gregory W Dawes
Recent literature on the relationship
between religion and science has
favoured the idea that the two can
exist in harmony. This study takes the
opposing view, arguing that religions
claim to a knowledge which transcends
scientifc reason, means discord is
always likely to exist. Using Galileos
confict with the church as a starting
point, Dawes engages with issues
of religious faith, Biblical authority,
divine revelation and the evolving
nature of both science and theology.

In the years after the First World
War, living conditions across much

health authorities were forced to
focus on social issues such as diet and
sanitation. Based on extensive archival
research, this study examines the role
of the Rockefeller Foundation and the

Barona argues that the Foundation

to its ideology of spreading good

opportunities and aiming at achievable
goals, creating a revolution in public
health practice.

early modern thinkers had no such
distinctions, with knowledge being a

Celestial Wonders in
Reformation Germany
Ken Kurihara
Celestial phenomena were often
harnessed for use by clerics in early
modern Germany. As Protestantism
took hold, there was a desire among
many infuential theologians to
underline the need for doctrinal
acceptance. Divine omens or signs of
apocalyptic warning were a useful way
to encourage obedience and respect for
clerical authority. Kurihara examines
how and why interest in these events
grew in this period, how the clergy
exploited these beliefs and the role of
sectarianism in Germany at this time.

Sex, Identity and
Hermaphrodites in Iberia,
15001800
Richard Cleminson and
Francisco Vzquez Garca
Early modern European thought held
that men and women were essentially
the same, with social forces creating
their differences. Such a view made
the existence of hermaphrodites easy
to accept. During the seventeenth
century, medical and legal arguments
began to turn against this one-sex
model, with hermaphroditism seen
as a medieval superstition. This
book traces this change in Iberia in
comparison to the earlier shift in
thought in northern Europe, and with
concurrent ideas in Latin America.

The Public Lives of Charlotte
and Marie Stopes
Stephanie Green
Charlotte Carmichael Stopes devoted
her life to the study of Shakespeare
and to the promotion of women in
public life. Though Charlotte is largely
forgotten, her daughter Marie is well
known as a passionate advocate of
sex education and womens rights.
Green asserts that Maries success
can only be understood in relation to
the achievements of her mother. The
careers of the two women are further
used to argue that scholarly success in
the late nineteenth and early twentieth
century was only possible through
sustained engagement with the (male)
establishment.

Until Darwin, Science,
Human Variety and the
Origins of Race
B Ricardo Brown
Until the publication of On the
Origin of Species, the prevailing
theory was that humans were made
up of fve separate species. This view
was favoured by those looking for
a justifcation for slavery. Focusing
on both the classifcation systems of
human variety and the development of
science as truth, Brown looks at the
rise of biology and sociology and the
debate surrounding abolition.

The Darwin family was instrumental
in the history of botany. Their
experiences illustrate the growing
specialization and professionalization
of science in the nineteenth century.
Ayres shows how botany became a
rigorous laboratory science.

Selected Correspondence of
William Huggins
Editor: Barbara J Becker
William Huggins (18241910) was
celebrated in his lifetime as the
father of astrophysics, and as the
author of numerous groundbreaking
articles documenting his use of the
spectroscope to analyse the light from
celestial bodies. From the earliest days
of his career Huggins was regularly in
contact with other scientists, including
astronomers, chemists, physicists,
mathematicians and the makers of
scientifc instruments.
This edition includes over 1,000
letters and excerpts from Hugginss
observatory notebooks. The
documents, the majority of which are
previously unpublished, reveal the
important role that Huggins played in
the development of astrophysics.

The Correspondence of
John Tyndall
General Editors: James Elwick,
Bernard Lightman and
Michael S Reidy
John Tyndall (182093) was one
of the most infuential scientists of
the nineteenth century. Primarily
a physicist, he was also one of a
group of powerful intellectuals who
defended Darwin against his critics.
His correspondents read like a whos
who of international nineteenth-
century science and include: Charles
Babbage, J D Hooker, Thomas Henry
Huxley, Charles Lyell, Louis Pasteur,
Robert Koch and Bertrand Russell.
In the days before journal publishing
was fully developed, the exchange of
correspondence was a highly effcient
way of sharing scientifc research.
This series will allow scholars to
re-establish Tyndall amongst his
contemporaries.
Presents over 7,000 letters sourced from
archives and private collections

The Botanic Garden by
Erasmus Darwin
Editors: Adam Komisaruk and
Allison Dushane
The work of polymath Erasmus
Darwin (17311802) provides an
insight into the intellectual world
of late eighteenth-century Britain.
He was a popular poet, practising
physician, inventor of speaking
machines and mechanical birds,
essayist on natural history and
proponent of an evolutionary theory
that inspired his grandson Charles.
Erasmuss epic poem The Botanic
Garden (1792) is a synthesis of his
many interests, celebrating the
wonders of the natural world. This
critical edition is the frst to address
this important work. It comprises
the complete text (poems, prose
apparatus and illustrations) along with
extensive commentary. The poem is

Spiritualism, Mesmerism and
the Occult, 18001920
Editor: Shane McCorristine
This edition provides an important
insight into the dark areas between
Victorian science, medicine and
religion. To the Victorians their quest
was to prove the existence of the
supernatural through the application
of scientifc principles. Their emphasis
was frmly on proof rather than faith
and led to the emergence of psychical
research as a discipline.
The rare source material in this
collection is organized thematically
and spans the period from initial
mesmeric experiments at the
beginning of the nineteenth century to
the decline of the Society for Psychical
Research in the 1920s.

Literature and Science, 16601834
General Editor: Judith Hawley
In the eighteenth century science was used to denote knowledge of all sorts.
Ways of understanding and representing the world were being reformulated in a
period of intellectual ferment and artistic experimentation. In the Royal Society, in
the gentlemans library, in Grub Street and the ladys closet, the impact of natural
philosophy was registered, assimilated, extended and sometimes challenged and
rebuffed. Texts are reproduced in facsimile and show the polymathic nature of the
literature of science.

Eighteenth-Century Coffee-
House Culture
Editor: Markman Ellis
Coffee-houses provided a forum for
exchanging views and nurturing
public opinion across the social
spectrum. This is captured in the
satires reproduced here. Coffee-house
plays also celebrated the role of the
coffee-house in circulating gossip,
scandal, rumour and subversion. The
distinct properties of the coffee-house
were recognized in the period by
natural philosophers, antiquarians and
historians. Their debates on science
and historiography are included in this
edition. The coffee-room encouraged
scientifc culture and became a
precursor of the laboratory: science
became a public matter.

The Narrative of the Beagle Voyage, 18311836

HMS Beagle has entered the collective imagination as the ship that carried
Charles Darwin to the Galapagos, triggering his later work on the theory of natural
selection.
Darwin and FitzRoys separate accounts of the voyage were published in the four-

Beagle Between the Years 1826 and 1836 (1839). In contrast, this set presents
the frst critical edition of the remaining texts from 1839: FitzRoys account of the
second voyage, his detailed appendices and the account of the 182630 voyage by
Phillip Parker King, captain of HMS Adventure. Together they give an unparalleled
example of British scientifc exploration.
