    The article examines Thomas Kuhn's work in the history of science with special attention to its relevance to subsequent developments in social epistemology. The article begins with a discussion of Kuhn's historical work, and the so-called historical turn in philosophy of science. It then examines Kuhn's views on textbook science, followed by an analysis of Kuhn's views on the relationship between the history of science and the philosophy of science.

    Finding the History and Philosophy of Science.Scott B. Weingart - 2015 - Erkenntnis 80 (1):201-213.
    History of science and philosophy of science have experienced a somewhat turbulent relationship over the last century. At times it has been said that philosophy needs history, or that history needs philosophy. Very occasionally, something entirely new is said to need them both. Often, however, their relationship is seen as little more than a marriage of convenience. This article explores that marriage by analyzing the citations of over 7,000 historians, philosophers, and sociologists of science. (...)

    History of science-with labs.Douglas Allchin, Elizabeth Anthony, Jack Bristol, Alan Dean, David Hall & Carl Lieb - 1999 - Science & Education 8 (6):619-632.
    We describe here an interdisciplinary lab science course for non-majors using the history of science as a curricular guide. Our experience with diverse instructors underscores the importance of the teachers and classroom dynamics, beyond the curriculum. Moreover, the institutional political context is central: are courses for non-majors valued and is support given to instructors to innovate? Two sample projects are profiled.

    History of Science as Interdisciplinary Education in American Colleges: Its Origins, Advantages, and Pitfalls.Paula Viterbo - 2007 - Journal of Research Practice 3 (2):Article M16.
    Before 1950, history of science did not exist as an independent academic branch, but was instead pursued by practitioners across various humanities and scientific disciplines. After professionalization, traces of its prehistory as a cross-disciplinary area of interest bound to an interdisciplinary, educational philosophy have remained. This essay outlines the development of history of science as an interdisciplinary academic field, and argues that it constitutes an obvious choice for inclusion in an interdisciplinary academic program, provided faculty and (...)

    Toward a rational history of medical science.K. Codell Carter - 1995 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 26 (3):493-502.
    W. F. Bynum’s Science and the Practice of Medicine in the Nineteenth Century is an excellent, authoritative account of the rise of modem medicine. Bynum’s thesis is clearly stated: “in terms of concepts, institutions, and professional structures, the medicine of 1900 was closer to us almost a century later than it was to the medicine of 1790. In other words, modem medicine, by which I simply mean ‘our’ medicine, was the product of nineteenth-century society.“’ After surveying medical thought and (...)
