I think you can do good science…if you actually understand the conceptual structure of the discipline, you can make better contributions to it than if you just kinda assume that you’re uncovering truth, truth after truth and there’s really no underlying agenda. Because there is one.

Ford Doolittle, Gerhard Herzberg Canada Gold Medal for Science and Engineering 2014

Students, all through from undergraduate right through to post-doctoral fellows are really engaged in broader questions within these fields, partly tearing down some of the boundaries… History of Science, History of Medicine, History of Technology, STS…and starting to borrow from a variety of fields and ask really interesting sophisticated questions.
