Format: Hardcover
Shiv Visvanathan is a brilliant writer and an original thinker. His interpretation of science is essentially a humanist one. He argues for a science that rooted in concerns of all that is human, a science of play not of war,a non-vivisectionist science. The article on Vavilov is tribute to all great scientists who saw in science a liberatory role. A must read for all those interested in science of the third world. Especially for scientists and engineers- from rich and poor countries alike. This book will open some eyes.
