  • Physics Moves to the Provinces: The Siberian Physics Community and Soviet Power, 1917–1940.Paul Josephson & Aleksandr Sorokin - 2017 - British Journal for the History of Science 50 (2):297-327.
    The rich tradition of Siberian science and higher education is little known outside Russian academic circles. Using institutional history, this article focuses on the founding and pre-war period of the Siberian Physical Technical Institute, the establishment of its research focus and its first difficult steps to become a leading centre of R & D in Siberia. Based on archival materials, the article describes how local and national physicists justified the institute's creation by demonstrating ties with industry and building on the (...)

  • Building Baluchitherium and Indricotherium: Imperial and International Networks in Early-Twentieth Century Paleontology.Chris Manias - 2015 - Journal of the History of Biology 48 (2):237-278.
    Over the first decades of the twentieth century, the fragmentary remains of a huge prehistoric ungulate were unearthed in scientific expeditions in India, Turkestan and Mongolia. Following channels of formal and informal empire, these were transported to collections in Britain, Russia and the United States. While striking and of immense size, the bones proved extremely difficult to interpret. Alternately naming the creature Paraceratherium, Baluchitherium and Indricotherium, paleontologists Clive Forster-Cooper, Alexei Borissiak and Henry Fairfield Osborn struggled over the reconstruction of this (...)

  • The New Scientific Policy: The Early Soviet Project of “State-Sponsored Evolutionism”.Evgeny Blinov - 2017 - Social Epistemology 31 (1):51-65.
    The aim of the present paper is to show that the fundamental transformation of Russian society that had been realized by the Soviet government since the early twenties included not only the reforms of scientific institutions or the creation of a new educational system but also a radical reevaluation of the social role of the expert knowledge. It proposes a transversal analysis of the institutional history of the Soviet science and its complex relations with the state apparatus in order to (...)
