Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Visual Cultures of Science is a fine volume that brings together some first-rate essays about an increasingly important topic. The individual contributions build upon and extend investigations of visualization and visible evidence in science. The range of contributions is broad and stimulating, and Pauwels has done a great job in framing the volume as a whole. As a result, this book is full of insights for scholars who want to 'study' science and for those who 'do' science and want to do it better.". Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1584655127
Inhaltsangabe: Issues of representation affect every aspect of scientific activity, from the encoding, display, analysis, and presentation of data to the communication of scientific concepts and information to students and the general public. The essays in this collection explore the issues involved in the creation and deployment of visual representations in both the natural and the social sciences.
Visual Cultures of Science offers a mix of theoretical analyses and revealing case studies. The latter address such topics as the technologies of visualization (from X-ray machines to films made by anthropologists), the persuasive power of the graphic presentation of data (including a critique of the work of Edward Tufte), and the distillation of data into pedagogical representations such as scientific wall charts for classroom use. With its useful mix of theory and case study, the book addresses both abstract and practical issues of representation, as well as demonstrating the importance of recognizing historicized perspectives in addressing issues of representation.
These essays, by many of the field?s leading minds today, offer solid research and new information pertaining to the methods, purposes, and implications of scientific visual culture.
