Models:The Third Dimension of Science
This book is about wooden ships and plastic molecules, wax bodies and a perspex economy, monuments in cork and mathematics in plaster, casts of diseases, habitat dioramas and extinct monsters rebuilt in bricks and mortar. Considering such objects together for the first time, this interdisciplinary volume demonstrates how, in research as well as teaching, 3-D models played major roles in making knowledge.
