Band of Rivals: How Scientists Learned to Cooperate by Lorraine Daston EPUB
Why is the scientific community so unified?
In the last 350-odd years, the international âscientific communityâ has come to be the bastion of consensus and concerted action, especially in the face of two global crises: disastrous climate change, and a deadly pandemic. How did âthe scientific communityâ come into existence, and why does it work?
Rivals is an attempt to answer these questions in the form of a brief historical overview, from the late seventeenth to the early twenty-first centuries, through the creation of two enormous projectsâthe Carte du Ciel, or the great star map, and the International Cloud Atlas, pioneered by the World Meteorological Organization after World War II. These new models of intergovernmental collaboration and global observation networks would later make the mounting evidence of planetary phenomena like climate change possible.
Drawing upon original documents stored in Paris, Geneva, and Uppsala, historian of science Lorraine Daston offers a fascinating, lively study of successful and unsuccessful scientific collaborations. Rivals is indispensable both as history and as guidance.
Did you know that your ISP and government can monitor your torrent activity?
When you use torrent networks to download or share files, your online actions can be easily monitored by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and government authorities. The protocol used by torrents, along with your IP address, makes it simple for them to trace your connections. Consequently, ISPs and government agencies have the capability to identify your torrenting activities.
To safeguard your privacy and evade tracking of your torrenting activities, we recommend using the direct download button. By utilizing the direct download option, you can acquire files directly without relying on torrent networks. This method enables you to securely and anonymously obtain the desired files without being tracked.
