Description
From the sheep, dog, and cockerel that were sent aloft in the Montgolfier brothers' balloon to Volta's electrified frogs' legs, Dolly the cloned sheep, Darwin's finches in the Galápagos, and even hypothetical cats and simulated life forms, philosopher and science historian Rom Harré explores the role of living things in science. Rather than an ethical debate, Harré gives us a lively collection of stories from the "living laboratory"—tales of the people involved, curious incidents and episodes, and the occasional scientific fraud—showing many ways in which the study of living things has contributed greatly to our scientific understanding of the world.
