Paper 1 topic (paper due Feb. 1)

Write a 4-5 page double-spaced typed paper (in a 12 point font) using an idea you learned in the Principe book to compare Principe's example with an outside past or present-day example. Note that you are required to use this structure: half your paper explaining specifics from the book and half based on research into a material not covered by the book on a related topic, past or present.  You must discuss the method or character or philosophical underpinnings or world view of science during the scientific revolution, not just facts and specific theories.  General paper instructions are here:

You may use APA, MLA or Chicago format for your references.  Online sources of all types are appropriate, if used critically and referenced appropriately.  Make sure to reread the discussion of academic integrity in the syllabus.
