A Science Carol

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009
All, History of Science | Comments

Performed and produced by Christopher Last, Casey Walruth & Jeffrey Tucker, this podcast constitutes a dramatic interpretation of Steven Shapin's book 'The Scientific Life: A Moral History of a Late Modern Vocation.' Intended as a parody of Charles Dicken's literary classic 'A Christmas Carol,' Last, Walruth & Tucker tell the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, a miserly old scientist who embarks on a mystical journey to learn the true-meaning of science. Visitations by the Ghosts of Science Past, Present & Future help Scrooge to see that the scientific life is not exactly what he thought it to be, and that scientists themselves are as human as the next man. Dramatic acting, excellent scripting and good-natured humor make this a presentation not to be missed.

This is a podcast and interview of Jay A. Labinger about his book "the one culture?" that claims to have signified the end of the "science wars". He "is a chemist by training and continues to be active in research in catalysis and organometallic chemistry. In the last eight years or so he has also become involved in areas encompassing broader issues of science and has written articles and spoken at meetings on science and literature, sociology of science, and history of science. His current position is administrator of the Beckman Institute at Caltech."
