Sources of Influence on Problem Choice in the Agricultural Sciences: "The New Atlantis" Revisited. Draft.
Busch, Lawrence; Lacy, William B.
Presented is a discussion of the state of the art of internalist and externalist positions within the literature of sociology and philosophy of science. The research utilizes interviews with scientists from a variety of disciplines in the agricultural sciences, a review of publications, research educational guidelines, and formal organization of each discipline. The limitations of both the internal and external positions are suggested as being subject to change by each scientist, discipline, and institution. (Author/SA)
