    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 140.00

    The iconoclastic ingenuity of bohemians, from Gerard de Nerval to Allen Ginsberg, continually captivates the popular imagination; the worlds of fashion, advertising, and even real estate all capitalize on the alternative appeal of bohemian style.

    This highly original work presents laboratory science in a deliberately skeptical way: as an anthropological approach to the culture of the scientist.
