The Archaeology of Science: Studying the Creation of Useful Knowledge, MICHAEL BRIAN SCHIFFER, 2013

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature review

Abstract

Since the 1960s, the question has changed from "Is archaeology a science?" to "Can we do an archaeology of science?" If you ask Michael Schiffer, the answer is a resounding yes. This book focuses on the research potential of an archaeological approach to "the creation of useful knowledge." While the main target audience is graduates and advanced-level undergraduates in archaeology, Schiffer hopes to
inspire scholars in other disciplines as well.
