The Popularization of Science in Nineteenth Century America.
Kuritz, Hyman
History of Education Quarterly, v21 n3 p259-74 Fall 1981
Explores the social context surrounding the popularization of science in nineteenth century America. The author argues that the popularization process was inseparable from the general democratization of Western society which was going on simultaneously. Increased public access to new scientific information was supposed to stimulate self-improvement, inventiveness, and social mobility. (AM)
