Sample text

In part, this was due to perception of it not as a cursed disease, but rather as a "romantic" one ([4], p. 78). A national competition over a socially unimportant disease is inconceivable; no ministry director would be able to arouse the best scientists of his nation to combat it. Quite clearly, the "social atmosphere"- to use a Fleckian term- first motivates the more focused research group in its investigation. Subsequently, through a continually growing number of co-workers and their interaction, this group produces something like a collective experiment and then a communal, anonymous development of the reaction that raises the initially meager results to their eventual usefulness.

Haeser, who was an influential historian of his time, suggested that this dark poem contains REPLY TO SCHAFER 41 mythological and astrological considerations about the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in the year 1484 as the almost generally accepted cause of epidemic lues venerea, or venereal disease4 ([5], pp. 238-239). But Haeser's interpretation manifests nineteenth century ideology, a view according to which the whole medical tradition had, up until this time, been irrational and non-scientific.

Fleck identifies five factors in this introductory work that both characterize the community of serologists and permanently determine their activities. These five factors have nothing to do with any experimentally established results or methods. First of all, they include (1) a particular concept of infectious disease, inappropriately applied. Fleck refers here to the fact that even this supposedly experimental notion still involved the old demon of sickness, forcing itself- quite irrespective of rational grounds- upon scientists' ways of thinking.
