Bibliography of all articles in Isis and Osiris on the History of Human Science

1970-1998

This is a bibliography that was prepared for a volume that Forum for the History of Human Sciences, an interest group affiliated with the History of Science Society, proposed for the University of Chicago Press.  While the Press did not accept the Forum’s propsed volume, one result of the proposal was this bibliography of all articles published in the human science in Isis and Osiris between 1970-1998. 

 

As the attached bibliography demonstrates, “human science” encompasses many different scientific disciplines.  Psychology, anthropology, eugenics, and sociology are all well represented, as are the medical arts.  But Isis has also published articles on social statistics, criminology, economics and other disciplines that have received less historical attention.  If the bibliography demonstrates nothing else, it should show that there is a firm foundation for further work in the history of the human sciences.
