  Modern History Sourcebook: T. H. Huxley: Science and Culture, 1880
Whatever may be the exact magnitude of his services to pure science, he was a master in the writing of English for the purposes of exposition and controversy, and a powerful intellectual influence on almost all classes in his generation.
They were of opinion that science is speculative rubbish; that theory and practice have nothing to do with one another; and that the scientific habit of mind is an impediment, rather than an aid, in the conduct of ordinary affairs.
And, as to the desirableness of a wider culture than that yielded by science alone, it is to be recollected that the improvement of manufacturing processes is only one of the conditions which contribute to the prosperity of industry.

 Science & Education
He made admirable discoveries in science; his philosophical treatises are still well worth reading; his political works are full of insight and replete with the spirit of freedom; and while all these sparks flew off from his anvil, the controversial hammer rained a hail of blows on orthodox priest and bishop.
Nevertheless, as Priestley himself somewhere remarks, the first object of physical science is to ascertain facts, and the service which he rendered to chemistry by the definite establishment of a large number of new and fundamentally important facts, is such as to entitle him to a very high place among the fathers of chemical science.
Science is, I believe, nothing but trained and organised common sense, differing from the latter only as a veteran may differ from a raw recruit: and its methods differ from those of common sense only so far as the guardsman's cut and thrust differ from the manner in which a savage wields his club.

 EducationGuardian.co.uk | Special Reports | Science museum unveils 1880 bra
From the rib-squeezing corset of the Victorian age to the traffic-stopping Wonderbra advertisements of the 1990s, the female form has long been constricted and occasionally liberated to fit the image of the age.
The "breast enhancer", which dates from 1880, is part of a collection being shown at the museum's Dana Centre tomorrow to illustrate a talk on whether beauty is skin deep.
What is unusual about the 1880 version is that the pads were made into a bra.

 OhioLINK ETD: Kiefer, Geraldine
1880-1900, straddled a period of intense discovery and theoretical formulation in the sciences.
His grasp of empiricist perceptual theory and empirio-criticism (a late nineteenth century philosophy, associated with the physicist Ernst Mach, that criticized the narrowness of empiricism when not integrated into original structures of thought) reveals that he was not a dilettante but was cognizant of key developments and figures in the history and philosophy of science.
Stieglitz's drive to excel as both a laboratory technician and proponent of Wissenschaftideologie, an ethical ideal of research fostered by German academic scientists, shows that his was a philosophy of impassioned research and discovery.

 Science and Culture by T. H. Huxley (1880)
On the one hand, they have been pooh-poohed by the men of business who pride themselves on being the representatives of practicality; while, on the other hand, they have been excommunicated by the classical scholars, in their capacity of Levites in charge of the ark of culture and monopolists of liberal education.
After having learned all that Greek, Roman, and Eastern antiquity have thought and said, and all that modern literature have to tell us, it is not self-evident that we have laid a sufficiently broad and deep foundation for that criticism of life, which constitutes culture.
The period of the Renascence is commonly called that of the "Revival of Letters," as if the influences then brought to bear upon the mind of Western Europe had been wholly exhausted in the field of literature.

And after a battle, not altogether dissimilar to that which is at present being fought over the teaching of physical science, the study of Greek was recognised as an essential element of all higher education.
The advocacy of the introduction of physical science into general education by George Combe and others commenced a good deal earlier; but the movement had acquired hardly any practical force before the time to which I refer.

Showing how the rise of scientific organizations around the turn of the century centered on national scientific enterprises, Crawford argues that scientific activities of the late nineteenth century were an integral part of the emergence of the nation-state in Europe.
Internationalism in science, both theoretical and practical, began to hold sway over scientists only when economic relations and transportation and communication facilities began to cross national boundaries.
Crawford uses the Nobel population for prosopographic studies that shed new light on national and international science between 1901 and 1939.

 GOETHEAN SCIENCE: BRINGING CHAOS TO ORDER BY LOOKING PHENOMENA RIGHT IN THE I   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The ideal of inorganic science is to grasp the totality of all phenomena as a unitary system in order that we may approach each phenomenon with the consciousness that we recognize it as a member [or part] of the universe.
In the organic science on the contrary, the ideal must be to have in the utmost entirety possible in the type and its phenomenal forms, that which we see evolving in the series of single beings.
Science then operates under a "don’t ask; don’t tell" policy with regard to these questions but the price of denial is that science in its solemn solipsism ends up subjectively anthropomorphizing the entire universe — a phenomenon I call "post-modern scientific animism."
