In the beginning was economic geography - a science studies approach to disciplinary history

Auteur :
BARNES, T.J.

Description :
The purposes of the paper are twofold. The first is to provide a selective review of science studies, with three subtraditions (Mertonian institutionalism, the sociology of scientific knowledge, and cultural studies of science). The second is to begin developing a case study in order to apply such literature, that of the institutional origins of economic geography during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and linked to a series of wider social processes around commercial trade and imperialism.
