about this item

The influence of language on scholarship has often been analyzed, ranging from its influence on epistemology to issues of global language and its constraints. This volume focuses on historical case studies at the intersection of language and science, dealing with a variety of topics: the relationship between general language and the subcategories of scientific languages, the connection between the emergence of national languages and the development of science within national settings, the relations between the creation of scientific languages and the appearance of new scientific disciplines, and reflection on the role and possibilities of language by scientists themselves.
