|Цели и задачи||
The History and Sociology of Science uses the tools of the humanities and social sciences to study science, technology, and medicine. Its practitioners strive to grasp the relations between the technical practice of scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and clinicians, and the material, social and cultural circumstances in which they work. The Department's research concerns not only the United States and Western Europe but the former Soviet Union, East Asia, and Africa. Its members draw on the methods and insights of history, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and other disciplines.
