About the Authors
  • This series of essays discusses how progress is identified in a range of disciplines - physics, mathematics, biology, medicine, sociology, linguistics, art history, history, economics and ecology. The articles are based on discussions at a symposium organised by the European Science Foundation and are by acknowledged leaders in the fields covered. They seek to promote communication between the different disciplines, to identify the criteria of advancement and to examine problems in assessing them.
