Annamaria Carusi, Blanca Rodriguez, Kevin Burrage
2017 Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology  
In addition these approaches are poised to enhance the capacity to use human derived data, and to contribute to the refinement, replacement and reduction of animal based research.  ...  Computational modelling and simulation in all areas of biological and biomedical research have developed to a point where there is a highly sophisticated array of tools and techniques.  ...  At the same time, philosophical and social studies of science benefit hugely in their own understandings of science from being able to interact with scientists in open fora such as this.  ...

Philosophically correct science stories? Examining the implications of heroic science stories for school science

Catherine Milne
1998 Journal of Research in Science Teaching  
This article specifically examines the philosophical assumptions that underpin heroic science stories and the implications of these stories in the discursive practices of the school science classroom.  ...  Each of these types of story promotes a particular set of philosophical assumptions about science. These assumptions are presented implicitly within the framework of the story as truths of science.  ...  I am interested in examining the implicit notions of science that are embedded in particular types of science story told in school science.  ...
