The Linda Hall Library.
The Linda Hall Library is one of the world's leading collections of
science, engineering, and technology. With more than a million volumes, the collection dates from the fifteenth century to the present. Historical collections have been developed through more than 50 years of careful acquisitions. Particularly notable acquisitions were the library of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1947, and the Engineering Societies Library in 1995. As a result, long runs of scientific and technical society journals dating from the seventeenth century are a special strength of the collection. Rare books dating from the fifteenth century offer a significant resource for most aspects of the history and philosophy of science and technology. Nearby resources at the University of Kansas offer complementary holdings at the Spencer Research Library and at the Clendening History of Medicine Library.
New web-site, with extensive archives and other resources. The site has
been set up with the broad aim of bringing into communication the variety
of approaches to the understanding of human nature which have a regrettable
tendency to be less in touch with one another than they might. The editors
welcome writings and discussions on history, philosophy and social studies
in the human sciences; Darwinian scholarship; Darwinian psychology, sociobiology
and debates about them; cognitive psychology; modularity; narrative approaches;
hermeneutics; verstehen; biography and autobiography; behavioural genetics;
psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approaches and so on. Our main aim is
both to act as host to original work and to seek to create an enabling
space, a forum for constructive (including constructively critical) discussion
and critiques of the terms of reference and assumptions of various approaches
to the understanding of people as individuals, in groups, in institutions,
in societies and as political and ideological beings. We also provide
a number of guides to internet resources, bibliographies and reading lists.
We will add to these on an ongoing basis and welcome contributions and
suggestions for links. To propose writings or projects for the web site,
