Velvet Revolution at the Synchrotron: Biology, Physics, and Change in Science (Inside Technology)

After global conflict II, particle physics turned a dominant learn self-discipline in American academia. At many universities, alumni of the ny venture and of Los Alamos have been granted assets to begin (or enhance) courses of high-energy physics outfitted round the promise of a brand new and extra strong particle accelerator, the synchrotron. The synchrotron was once additionally a resource of very excessive X-rays, helpful for study in reliable states physics and in biology. As synchrotron X-ray technological know-how grew, the experimental perform of protein crystallography (used to figure out the atomic buildings of proteins and viruses), garnered investment, status, and acclaim. In Velvet Revolution on the Synchrotron, Park Doing examines the switch in medical perform at a synchrotron laboratory as biology rose to dominance over physics. He attracts on his personal observations and reviews on the Cornell college synchrotron, and considers the consequences of that fluctuate for the prestige of clinical claims. Velvet Revolution on the Synchrotron is without doubt one of the few contemporary works within the sociology of technological know-how that engages particular medical and technical claims via player observation--recorded evocatively and engagingly--to deal with concerns within the philosophy of technology. Doing argues that bureaucratic swap in technology is neither "top-down" nor "bottom-up" yet particularly played in and discovered via recursively similar boards of technical statement and resistance. He considers the connection of this alteration to the content material of technology, and the consequences of this courting for the undertaking of laboratory experiences started within the overdue 1970s.

Example text

In the rush of dieoretical reflection and empirical research about the labor process, writers sometimes conflated particular strategies that capital employs to further valorization with the goal of valorization itself. Capitalists were seen as always pursuing the deskilling of labor, or as always seeking maximum direct control over the labor process. But neither assertion is even roughly correct empirically, nor is either goal properly deducible from the imperative of valorization alone. "Skill" is not always a barrier to valorization; only under certain (common but not universal) circumstances does it become one.

Furthermore, debate on this issue can seldom be innocent. Profound political and philosophical differences entangle rapidly with matters of theory and methodology, as E. P. 21 Here we have reached the limits of the usefulness for our purposes of the exegesis of Marx's programmatic statements. The "1859 Preface" and similar passages will no doubt remain a mine, perhaps even a productive mine, for students of Marx's general theory and method. 22 Apart from its intrinsic interest (the main focus of what follows), this discussion throws interesting retrospective light on the more summary passages.

Giving] workers status, authority and responsibility . . " 71 Again, there is nothing in Marx's theory to suggest that capital will seek maximum control over the labor process as a goal in itself, or that capitalists will necessarily prefer direct over indirect forms of control. A degree of control over the labor process is clearly a prerequisite for valorization, but the theory does not lay down how that control can best be achieved, nor does it imply that control should be pursued regardless of its costs.
