HIST 083 PZ -Introduction to the History of Science


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course surveys the history of science as a field, covering the major works, questions and trends that have characterized it over the past half century or so. Subjects we will examine include (but are not limited to) the history of scientific objectivity, Eugenics, the Scientific Revolution, gender and science, science and colonialism, scientific racism, positivism, Islamic science, and the social construction of knowledge. We will sample some seminal primary sources, but the focus will be on the historiography of science– the stories people have told about science, its importance, its meaning, and its development.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
