The Culture of Scientists and Disciplinary Rhetoric.
Pinch, Trevor
European Journal of Education, v25 n3 p295-304 1990

Examination of how disciplinary identities are produced through rhetoric and how assessments of certainty and uncertainty are made across disciplines suggests that disciplines should not be regarded as fixed structures but as flexible resources.
