Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Controversies Within the Scientific Revolution
Edited By: Marcelo Dascal
Victor D. Boantza
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/cvs.11
Series Title: Controversies 11
Description:

From the beginning of the Scientific Revolution around the late sixteenth century
to its final crystallization in the early eighteenth century, hardly an observational
result, an experimental technique, a theory, a mathematical proof, a
methodological principle, or the award of recognition and reputation remained
unquestioned for long. The essays collected in this book examine the rich
texture of debates that comprised the Scientific Revolution from which the
modern conception of science emerged. Were controversies marginal episodes,
restricted to certain fields, or were they the rule in the majority of scientific
domains? To what extent did scientific controversies share a typical pattern,
which distinguished them from debates in other fields? Answers to these
historical and philosophical questions are sought through a close attention to
specific controversies within and across the changing scientific disciplines as
well as across the borders of the natural and the human sciences, philosophy,
theology, and technology.
