Mendel's Research Legacy in the Broader Historical Network
Orel, Vítezslav; Peaslee, Margaret H.
Science & Education, v24 n1-2 p9-27 Jan 2015
This historical narrative describes the foundation of education as established by J. A. Comenius (1592-1670). It explores the transfer of Comenius' tenets, utilized and modified through the years, up to their impact upon the ground-breaking experiments of G. Mendel (1822-1884), "the father of genetics". It explores the questions of heredity discussed among experts in the agricultural and natural sciences in the early 1800s and reviews the controversies and disputes that have occurred since Mendel was "rediscovered" in 1900. The value of studying the history of science as it impacts science today is underscored.
