  • Constructing Quarks: A Sociological History of Particle Physics By Andrew Pickering Widely regarded as a classic in its field, Constructing Quarks recounts the history of the post war conceptual development of elementary particle physics Inviting a reappraisal of the status of scientific knowledge, Andrew Pickering suggests that scientists are not mere passive observers and reporters of nature Rather they are social beings as well as active constructorsWidely regarded as a classic in its field, Constructing Quarks recounts the history of the post war conceptual development of elementary particle physics Inviting a reappraisal of the status of scientific knowledge, Andrew Pickering suggests that scientists are not mere passive observers and reporters of nature Rather they are social beings as well as active constructors of natural phenomena who engage in both experimental and theoretical practice A prodigious piece of scholarship that I can heartily recommend Michael Riordan, New Scientist An admirable history Detailed and so accurate Hugh N Pendleton, Physics Today

    Pickering is unsatisfying on a lot of levels While the history of particle physics is fairly good I say fairly because there are some problematic parts, like the roles of particle accelerators and theoretical models, that play an important, but often poorly specified, role in the story the book is rough because of what it expects of its readers and the development of some of the abstract framework presented in the early chapters.Like the seminal Leviathan and the Air Pump, there are some claims [...]

    An impressively well researched and erudite account of the development of high energy particle physics This is dense in physics, however make no mistake this is written by a sociologist Pickering leads the reader to his conclusion that the reality of quarks was the upshot of particle physicists practice and not the reverse Although I disagree with his conclusion I find that his analysis misses much of the nuance of practice and would point to his fellow sociologist Harry Collin s work on Gravity [...]

    A History of 20th century physics This history is broken into three stages of understanding the atom Atomic physics was the study of the outer layer of the atom the electron cloud Nuclear physics turned its attention upon the nucleus which was a composite of protons and neutrons Finally, after WWII elementary particle physics discovered particles in the nucleus elementary than the proton or neutron called quarks This is also called high energy physics HEP after its primary experimental tool the [...]

    actually it s the Chicago Press edition from 1984, black cloth with silver titles The last chapter is entitled producing a world It analyses the process and the history of particular scientific facts Demonstrating how did these theories and facts become facts If you consider how the extraordinary and awful history of the science of climate change has developed in the public realm, how much clearer the whole process looks after reading the book It s the process.e process
