Television medical dramas
A look at television medical dramas since the 1950s to present day, and why they have appealed to audiences and continue to do so. The appeal, I argue, hasn’t really changed in form since the days of radio dramas. I use Herta Herzog’s study from the early 1940s, “On Borrowed Experience: An Analysis of Listening to Daytime Sketches,” as the archetype for my conception of audience appeal.
Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
Section A provides a brief summary of the book; Section B makes an argument against the claim that Kuhn’s book sets a bad image of science for students of science.
Ian Hacking’s The Social Construction of What?
Review and critique of Ian Hacking’s book The Social Construction of What?, on the social construction of scientific knowledge.
Dilip P. Gaonkar’s rhetoric of science
Dilip Gaonkar claims that rhetorical vocabulary is inadequate for interpreting scientific discourse, since it was devised for the production of discourse (speech in particular). I refute Gaonkar’s claim with the aid of two excellent articles on the subject of rhetoric of science by L. Cecarrelli and E. Schiappa.
