Physics and the Rise of Scientific Research in Canada

The instructing of engineering and a metamorphosis in liberal arts curricula, either prompted by means of business development, inspired the construction of specialised classes within the sciences. by way of the Eighteen Nineties, Gingras argues, expert researchers had all started to seem in Canadian universities. The technological calls for of the 1st global struggle and the founding, in 1916, of the nationwide study Council of Canada (NRC) speeded up the expansion of clinical examine.

Objectivity and Diversity: Another Logic of Scientific Research

Concerns approximately clinical objectivity look unending. Social critics and philosophers of technology have argued that invocations of objectivity are frequently little greater than makes an attempt to spice up the prestige of a declare, whereas demands worth neutrality can be used to suppress in a different way legitimate dissenting positions.

A combination of research and teaching is still very much the norm. Relations between universities and private industry in Japan have shown nothing like the consistency of thinking about the academic role of the teacher-researcher. Prior to 1914 Japanese companies had little interest in developing research capabilities either alone or in conjunction with universities. But they did employ university professors as ad hoc consultants regarding foreign technology so often as to generate allegations that professors were neglecting students and their own research.

Following a 1954 initiative from the Ministry of Education, the Nikkeiren (Japanese Federation of Economic Organizations) issued a formal report in 1956 which criticized the law-liberal arts biases in the selection of university students and demanded more emphasis on science and engineering. In 1961, the cabinet of Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda acted on this recommendation by increasing dramatically the number of university places reserved for students in science and engineering. Whereas matriculation slots for such students were 28 percent of the total in 1952, by 1968 they constituted 46 percent.
