Into the Sciences

Authored by Frederick J. Ross
Edition: 1

To laymen 'science' and 'research' seem amorphous things, mysterious activities by lab-coated acolytes that somehow yield knowledge of our world. This book breaks them down into a clear model of the activities involved, then uses that model to explain why science is separated into disciplines, how those disciplines are shaped by their different subject matter, and finally how researchers choose what they do.
