To Darwin members: I have had a long term interest in the historical
sciences, from geology (FROM MINERALOGY TO GEOLOGY), to the history of
geology, to a current project on scientists' histories of science in the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. although the seminar will not focus on
the historical sciences, it will be deeply informed by my interest in them.
Do contact me if you would like further information. Best wishes, Rachel Laudan
