Description
SCIENCE IN GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
Science has never been an exclusive practice of any one society or region. In this course we will explore science as a global phenomenon by considering how different practices and traditions of science developed in disparate global contexts, how science travelled and was transformed through global circulation, and how a global and comparative perspective can inform our understandings of science, its history and its philosophy. Regions and time periods considered may vary from offering to offering. Every course offering will include a comparative component which considers how the circulation of materials, texts, technologies, and people have shaped the historical development of science.
