Standards: Taming Knowledge?

June 06, 2020

New issue of HoST — Journal of History of Science and Technology –  is available online. This is a peer-reviewed open access journal, available online, published in English by De Gruyter/Sciendo, as a result of a partnership between four Portuguese research units (CIUHCT, CIDEHUS, Institute for Social Sciences, and Institute of Contemporary History).

It features a dossier about standards and standardization in the History of Contemporary Science. They are case studies dealing with the setting of standards’ epistemological and institutional issues in the modern period, with approaches ranging from the history and philosophy of mathematics, the history and visual culture of biology to the history and philosophy of science and technology.
