Biological Explanation, Political Ideology, and "Blurred Genres": A Bakhtinian Reading of the Science Essays of J. B. S. Haldane.
Journet, Debra
Technical Communication Quarterly, v2 n2 p185-204 Spr 1993
Looks at science essays by J. B. S. Haldane that attempt to show connections between Marxist political theory and Darwinian evolutionary theory, thus blurring the generic characteristics of political and scientific discourse. Explores the understanding of the cultural dimensions of scientific activities and the resulting redefinitions of concepts of genre in scientific writing. (SR)
