The Market for Environmental Biotechnology

The upshot of this is that few biotech companies in the environmental sector perceive problems for their own business development models, principally as a result of the wide range of businesses for which their services are applicable, the relatively low market penetration to date and the large potential for growth. Competition within the sector is not seen as a major issue either, since the field is still largely open and unsaturated. Moreover, there has been a discernible tendency in recent years towards niche specificity, with companies operating in more specialised subarenas within the environmental biotechnology umbrella. Given the number and diversity of such possible slots, coupled with the fact that new opportunities, and the technologies to capitalise on them, are developing apace, this trend seems likely to continue. It is not without some irony that companies basing their commercial activities on biological organisms should themselves come to behave in such a Darwinian...

General References

Few products are as closely associated with American ingenuity, enterprise, and culture as soft drinks. The trademark of the market leader, the Coca-Cola Company, is the most recognized trademark in the world. That one company served an estimated 1 billion customers in 1997. Although a few large corporations dominate sales, there has always been a market for hundreds of small businesses offering unique alternatives to the mass-marketed brand names.

Gender and Multilingualism

Of these situations presents its own dynamics in ways that can only be briefly touched upon here. Gal's (1978) work on the use of Hungarian and German in Austria focuses on the effects of urbanization and industrialization on the speech patterns of women and men. Because the urban settings associated with use of German have different meanings and present different opportunities for young women and men, they use German and Hungarian differently. Young women are leading in the shift to German because, for them, German is associated with urban opportunities, having husbands who are workers, and having less strenuous and time-consuming household responsibilities, while Hungarian is associated with having peasant husbands and physically taxing household and farm responsibilities. Younger men, for whom the peasant life-style retains the attraction of self-employment and some measure of personal autonomy, use Hungarian more than young women. Because they cannot find Hungarian-speaking women...

Cultural Overview

Chinese immigrants began to arrive in California shortly before the Gold Rush in 1849. By the time the United States enacted the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882, about 125,000 Chinese lived in the United States the majority of them resided on the West Coast. In addition, about 50,000 Chinese landed in Hawaii between 1852 and 1900. The Chinese who came to California during the Gold Rush were mostly independent laborers or entrepreneurs. After gold mining declined, they worked to construct the western half of the first transcontinental railroad. They also contributed to the early development of agriculture in the Pacific Northwest and light manufacturing industries in California. A significant number of Chinese specialized in laundry businesses, although washing clothes was not a traditional occupation for men in China.

Barnum Effectphenomenon

Barnum effect, named after the American showman, charlatan, and entrepreneur Phineas T. Barnum (1810-1891), refers to the fact that a cleverly worded personal description based on general, stereotyped statements will be accepted readily as an accurate self-description by most people. The Barnum phenomenon is behind the fakery of fortunetellers, astrologers, and mind readers and often has contaminated legitimate study of personality assessment. The effect is consistent with Barnum's often-quoted aphorism There's a sucker born every minute. Barnum, a circus showman, knew that the formula for success was to have a little something for everybody. An early study of the Barnum effect (Forer, 1949) had a group of college students take a projective test on which they were given bogus feedback. In fact, each student was given the same interpretation. In general, the students felt that these interpretations were accurate and fitted them well. Thus, the tendency to accept standard feedback of a...

Positions Filled By Food Scientists Technologists

Amination of raw products to final sales. Positions of responsibility are also available in government (the Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Department of Defense, and among others, the Public Health Service). The same applies to state and local governments such as state departments of agriculture and state and local health departments. In the academic world, teachers and researchers find many opportunities. Entrepreneurs such as food consultants often establish a remunerative niche for themselves. The roles food scientists and technologists play will be more fully set forth in the article Food science and technology the profession. So too will developments as far as food processes are concerned. The next topic here will deal with changes taking place in the makeup of members of the profession.

Food Science And Technology The Profession

Food scientists and technologists are employed in academia, by government and industry, by consulting firms, in entrepreneurial endeavors of various sorts and as private consultants. Crucial to almost any profession is the education its members receive prior to entering into that profession. Food science and technology is no exception. For that reason, the development of the Institute of Food Technologists' (IFT) minimum undergraduate curriculum will be described first.

Antidiscrimination Legislation

Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) exempts self-insured health benefit plans from state insurance laws, so the employees of companies that participate in such plans have no protection. Many employers, especially small businesses, are self-insured, and rely upon commercial insurance companies to administer their health plans. These employer-funded self-insurance plans qualify for the ERISA exemption, and therefore do not have to comply with state mandates for services or state laws regarding genetic discrimination, involuntary testing, or privacy.

Present Problems and Potential Solutions

There is one federal act related to genetic discrimination that overrides ERISA and therefore applies to all health plans, even those offered by small businesses. This federal act is called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA specifies that if employees are covered by a group health insurance policy offered through their employer, they must be offered a similar policy when they change jobs. The new insurance company does not have to offer this coverage at the same rate as was offered by the old plan, but it cannot deny coverage by declaring the genetic disorder to be a preexisting condition. In contrast, if a person is either unemployed or self-employed, there is no requirement that an insurer offer him or her a policy.

Gender Roles in Economics

During wartime, the wives of soldiers and war widows functioned as family heads and were very resourceful in supplementing the family income. They became entrepreneurs who ran small restaurants or clothing stores. Others took over commodity trading from their husbands, and even expanded operations.

Patents and the Public Interest

Patenting is another commercially motivated practice that may create conflicts between the primary interests of good science and the secondary interests created by the profit motive. Patenting is based on the theory that innovators will be more likely to share their knowledge because they know that they will receive remuneration and credit and that entrepreneurs will be more willing to invest in the development of discoveries because they know that they have exclusive or protected access and will recoup their expenditures in profits. Patenting's skeptics, however, argue that the very nature of patenting undermines the traditional scientific norm of openness. Researchers may be tempted to withhold socially valuable information until they are certain that their pecuniary interests are protected by a patent (Kass Wiener). Especially in the biomedical fields, a delay in the release of information can lead to postponed development and dissemination and the loss of lives. Others speculate...

Marketable Products from Human Sources

Another challenging problem arises when an individual's body parts or cells are transformed into valuable commodities. In one such case, a patient's removed spleen contained unique cells that a physician-researcher cultured into a patented cell line. Should the patient have been apprised, as part of the informed-consent procedure, that the cells had potential commercial value Fully informed consent would have allowed the patient to evaluate the physician's potential conflict of interests and choice of treatments more effectively. Because society and the law have typically been hesitant to commodify the body and do not allow the sale of organs, it might seem inappropriate to grant the patient a share of the profits based on the theory that the tissue is his or her property. In contrast, the system appears to allow the biomedical entrepreneur to benefit from the sale of body parts. Developers of such innovative products might argue that the resulting cell line is not a body part but...

Postacademic Science Obstacles and Dilemmas

The new phenomenon of the independent scientific entrepreneur who often also maintains an academic appointment creates an additional ethical dilemma. Her or his role combines scientific, ethical, and financial risks. How is the responsibility of the scientist to be defined in this case How are conflicts between ethical and financial risks to be resolved Clearly, adherence to an ethos of disinterestedness is not justifiable, but no alternative professional ethos has been developed yet. When these different role prescriptions and dilemmas combine in the new postacademic hybrid culture, an ethical and bioethical void is created.

Pettys sixphase model of the creative process Description and intended use

Petty uses the term 'creative' in a broad sense to refer to invention, design, problem-solving and entrepreneurial initiatives, as well as to the creative arts and household decision-making. According to him (Petty, 1997), the creative process has six phases inspiration clarification evaluation distillation incubation and perspiration. These are experienced in no fixed order and usually several times during a particular piece of creative work. To be successful (avoiding blocks and being flexibly responsive), different mental attitudes ('mindsets') are said to be needed at each phase, as illustrated in table 4.7. In that table 'Perspiration' is placed next to 'Evaluation' to bring out the interplay which Petty claims often takes place between them.

Instrumental Activism

This term underscored that American civilization had secularized the Puritan emphasis on mastery over the given conditions of life and made it the ethical basis for a wide range of worldly social institutions. Thus, secular variants of the mastery ethic now guide the formation of institutions in science and technology, formally rational law and bureaucracy, the market system and entrepreneurship, and motives of personal self-discipline and improvement (Parsons). Highlighting consistency with this basic cultural theme, Parsons found not denial of death but mastery over its disrupting effects on personal and social life.

Relative Status of Men and Women

Browne's (2001) comparative study of female entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico, Martinique, and Barbados found that Puerto Rican ideologies of gender are the strictest and occupational segregation is most strongly pronounced. Entrepreneurial women appear more likely to be social outliers than their counterparts in less gender-stratified societies like Barbados. While two-thirds of working women in Puerto Rico are married and lived in nuclear households, the majority of female entrepreneurs are unmarried, living alone, or in nontraditional households. In Puerto Rico it is suggested that economically ambitious women may choose to avoid the constraints of family structures dominated by male authority. Other indicators suggest that entrepreneurial women go against normative patterns. While 85 of the Puerto Rican population is Catholic, nearly half of the entrepreneurial women in the study are not. The large proportion of non-Catholic unmarried women living in nontraditional households who own...

Dynamic changing organisation

The radical innovation needs a more dynamic product development organisation, which can change with the, often unpredicted, changes in the project. Some organisational methods are matrix, subsidiary divisional, entrepreneurial venture, corporate structures. Venture entrepreneurial seeks to introduce some of the attributes of the small entrepreneurial company into the large, multinational food company. The basic philosophy is to provide maximum responsibility to the venture manager project leader who is able to recruit the members of the team, free to use the resources as long as the budget is kept, and organise the activities within the overall aims of efficiency and effectiveness. The team creates the ideas and develops the product through to the launch and, if successful, the team may be allowed to form a company. This gives the opportunity for creative people with management and general business abilities to build a new product area for the company. The company not only has a new...

J A Critical Retrospective What Are the Surprises

Individuals in the 25 to 45 age range who have made a decision to rely on the good health associated with younger ages and use what would be health care premiums to grow their small business. Some in the second group have reached a compromise by setting aside in a savings account a portion of what health insurance would cost. It may be a matter for public policy to address the health care needs of the group that cannot afford health insurance. However, a challenge to the managed care industry is the design and implementation of a product that would be attractive to the entrepreneurial-minded small business owners in the second group, the owners of the so-called mom and pop store.

The Economic Pressures on Education and Training of Behavioral Care Providers

Fast disappearing in favor of capitated arrangements. An appropriate curriculum would acquaint the psychologist with the changes in the distribution and expected frequency of modal problems to be treated in a capitated arrangement as opposed to the traditional fee-for-service system. The assumption of risk, and risk management are integral parts of this training, as are many entrepreneurial aspects integral to the new delivery system.

Gender over the Life Cycle

While first-generation immigrants from Taiwan experienced favoring of boys in terms of parental attention and educational investments during their own upbringing, most of them treat their sons and daughters equally. Differences between boys and girls are not overly stressed during the early phase of their socialization. The assignment of household chores to children depends on the financial situation of the family. In working-class households and families who run their own business, children are more likely to take over important tasks at home or help in the family business from an early age (Chen, 1992).

The Social Construction of Illness

Parsons's sick role is the first sociological theory to recognize that the experience of illness is determined by social factors. Many sociologists accept Parsons's basic insights but differ with him on how the experience of illness is shaped by values and beliefs that are implicit, tacit, unexamined, and variable across cultural groupings. Conflict theorists, for example, emphasize that society is made up of competing groups with different values, rather than, as Parsons argued, cooperating groups with shared values (Freidson). For these sociologists, the physician's role as a fiduciary whose actions express the interests of patients is disputed the physician is seen instead as a moral entrepreneur who cloaks self-interest or the interests of his or her social class in a neutral scientific language.

Problems and Solutions

Albert Stacco, a professional crystallographer, flew on board the U.S. Microgravity (USML-2) Spacelab mission to complete an experiment on growing zeolite crystals (Figure 8-12). As such, he gained unique insights through serving as a scientist, astronaut, and commercial entrepreneur at the same time. The Zeolite Experiment was a success, yielding zeolite crystals that were superior to those grown on Earth (Figure 8-13).

Ethical problems of the

Perhaps the most fundamental ethical issue has to do with identity and mission. Is a hospital a business like any other, subject to the pressures of the marketplace, and primarily motivated by commercial interests and incentives Or is it a social institution, primarily responsible for serving the health needs of the community and sometimes suffering financial loss in the process These questions fall within the purview of the relatively recently established field of organizational ethics in healthcare. Two edited volumes (by Boyle, DuBose, Ellingson, et al. and Spencer, Mills, Rorty, et al.) elaborate on these questions and show how hospitals experience tensions between their role as community servants and their role as entrepreneurs. These roles can coexist, as for-profit hospitals have tried to show. However, the public has come to expect more from the nonprofits for example, that they provide care that is not reimbursed, support unprofitable services, and be alert to community...

Reproduction in Hindu Religious

In general, Hinduism has not been opposed to attempts to control reproduction. Female infanticide has been extensively practiced in India. An innovation is the use of ultrasound machines by entrepreneurs at village marketplaces a pregnant woman can find out whether she is carrying a boy or girl, with abortion elected in the instance of the latter. A similar practice exists in China. Although the practice of female infanticide can be explained in economic terms (a girl's parents must provide a dowry if she is to be married), it represents a practice of controlling reproductive outcome for family or social goals. Infanticide has not been viewed with the same opprobrium as in the West, although it is certainly not fair to imply that the Hindu religion condones such acts.

Research And Development Award

Award. 3,000 honorarium and a plaque from IFT (if a team wins, each member of the team will receive a plaque and an equal share of the 3,000). Purpose. To honor an IFT member or team of members who have made a recent, significant research and development contribution to the understanding of food science, food technology, or nutrition. Eligibility. All team members must be IFT members. Team nominations should identify those persons primarily responsible for the achievement. Team size is limited to a maximum of five persons. Team nominations should identify the role of each team member in accomplishment. Once a nomination is submitted, no additional team members may be added. The nominees must be primarily responsible for an achievement within the past 5 years in a research and development program. The achievement must significantly advance the discipline of food science, food technology, or nutrition. The contribution may be basic or applied in nature and must advance science or...

Risk as Self Governance

This biomedicalization of life itself comes with extravagant promises about our ability in the near future to harness nature as we wish, the enhancement of human potential, and access to the knowledge that makes it possible to know what it is that makes us uniquely human. Based on the results of genetic testing, a laissez-faire eugenics, grounded in individual choice and the inalienable right to health for our offspring, is already taking place (Lock, 2002). Of course, suffering is reduced when, for example, families choose to abort fetuses with Tay Sach's disease. On the other hand, how can discrimination on the basis of genetics, already evident in some workplaces, insurance companies, and the police force, be controlled Should entrepreneurial enterprises have a monopoly over the development of testing for multifac-torial diseases such as breast and prostate cancer as is currently the case How should the findings of these tests be interpreted by clinicians and the public when all...

Post Colonial Medicine

From the perspective of Indonesians traditional medicine includes a wide variety of shaman who practice as curers, sorcerers, and ceremonial specialists. In addition to this varied group of shaman are the roving sellers of health elixirs, entrepreneurs who make and sell elixirs and other medicines out of their homes and in the markets. Practitioners of traditional medicine also include masseuse Chinese herbalists and acupuncturists healers who practice South Asian Ayurvedic and Arab Unani medicine particularly potent teachers of Islam who have the ability to heal persons who exhibit a particular talent for healing and other shamanistic practices such as divination spirit mediums medical doctors who include traditional medicine in their practices a wide variety of dentists, optometrists, and surgeons who use traditional medical techniques and medicines and entrepreneurs who sell manufactured and prepared traditional medicines. Practitioners of traditional medicine are often referred to...


In nations where fish are produced for recreational fishing, funding for hatcheries is often raised from user fees such as fishing licenses. Such hatcheries are usually government facilities. For most private aquaculture companies to get started, outside funding is required. Funding may come through banks and other commercial lending sources or from venture capitalists. The high risks associated with aquaculture have made it difficult for many firms to obtain bank loans, although that situation is changing as bankers become more knowledgeable and comfortable with underwriting aquaculture ventures. Large corporations have also entered the aquaculture field. Some have abandoned aquaculture after a few years, but others continue to diversify into the arena. Highly profitable corporations may have an easier time obtaining the requisite funding for establishing aquaculture ventures than small entrepreneurs.


For individuals who choose self-employment possibilities, the vocational profile provides an alternative course to move from an idea or concept to business plan development. The vocational profile begins with an expectancy of job placement or self-employment that builds on individual strengths, personal preferences, and individual and community natural supports already in place. There is a presumption that anyone who wishes to work can work. The profile moves away from traditional assessment models of standardized tests and time and productivity studies of ability to work. Through observation and structured interviews with the individual and others who know the individual, an individually selected employment specialist will capture the family support available, a description of typical After the development of the profile, a profile meeting should be held. Meeting attendance should include friends, family members, and others selected by the individual. The purpose of the meeting is to...

The Department of Justice ADA Technical Assistance Program provides free information and technical assistance directly to businesses, nonprofit service providers, state and local governments, people with disabilities, and the general public. Technical assistance services provide the most up-to-date information about the ADA and how to comply with its requirements. The program also undertakes broad and targeted outreach initiatives to increase awareness and understanding of the ADA and operates an ADA Technical Assistance Grant Program to develop and target materials to reach specific audiences at the local level, including hotels and motels, restaurants, small businesses, builders, mayors and town officials, law enforcement, people with disabilities, and others.


Performance and functional status measures may help to define the disability and help determine the need for more comprehensive assessments. Handicap is the impact of the disability on the person's overall satisfaction and well-being. Handicap is generally what is referred to when discussing quality of life (QOL) and is often assessed by QOL questionnaires. Again, handicap is very individual. One person can be handicapped by a relatively minor disability, whereas another individual suffering from a severe impairment may experience little handicap. For example, an impairment in multitasking caused by a difficulty with sustained attention is a common problem for cancer patients. This may not be particularly handicapping to a person who is self-employed and can work at his or her own pace at home. However, it might cause a secretary in a busy office, who needs to answer the phone while word processing, to lose his or her job. Thus, all three levels of function...

Ethical Issues

Biotechnology Entrepreneur The biotechnology entrepreneur often starts with a technical background, most commonly including scientific laboratory research. It is quite common for scientists who have spent a number of years in an academic environment to start a new company based on a technology platform or a novel discovery they made during their tenure at a university or research institute. Alternatively, a scientist or a group of scientists from a rather large company may decide to leave and start their own venture based on some of the research and development work they had either performed or thought about doing for their previous employer. This type of business may or may not be a spin-off from the parent company. In some cases, a businessperson or two may join the scientists in the start-up of the new company. A less frequent but still relatively common phenomenon is the start-up of a new venture by someone with a stronger background in business than in science. All of these...

Newer Processes

Organizations, universities, the government, and entrepreneurial enterprises. Within recent years, newer forms of processing have arisen. Among them is extrusion processing (21), controlled atmosphere and modified atmosphere storage of fruits and vegetables controlled atmosphere packaging of food products (22,23) minimal processing coupled with refrigeration and some forms of packaging to permit the marketing of fruits, vegetables, and other kinds of foods (24-25) and edible packaging of various sorts (2628). Not identical to the fresh produce but generally close to it, minimal processed foods have made a decided niche for themselves. Aseptic processing has unquestionably developed for itself a major role in food preservation (29), and ohmic heating is coming to the fore (30).

Scientific research

Scientific research has never been entirely insulated from the incentives provided by the profit motive and the need to secure financial support. Scientists have always required funding, whether it be from personal funds, patrons, universities, or industry. Similarly, opportunities for scientific entrepreneurship have always existed. Since the early 1800s, however, scientific research has both required increasing amounts of capital investment and promised progressively greater financial returns. Consequently, scientists have been forced to rely on a broader range of funding sources and have become more willing to involve themselves in the financial implications of their work. This incremental commercialization of science has increased markedly since the early 1980s and poses challenges for both society and the research community.

Naganga Religion

Attended mission schools and became entrepreneurs who took over local administrative and political offices when the revolutionary government threw the mestizos out of these positions. They function as the economic and political backbone of Kachitu. Crandon-Malamud (1991, p. x) tends to conflate ethnicity and social class, noting that Aymara-ness, mesitzo-ness, and even Methodism constitute masks for social class.

The Patent Process

In addition to patent protection in the United States, many inventors apply for protection in other countries. Most countries, including Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia, and the nations of Western Europe, recognize genes as being patentable subject matter. However, these other countries have different standards for patentability than those followed in the United States, and many do not allow patents for medical devices. Although there are some patent attorneys who are licensed to practice both in the United States and abroad, most inventors employ the services of foreign patent attorneys who are familiar with the patent laws and rules in the foreign country of interest. see also Attorney Biotechnology Entrepreneur Legal Issues Transgenic Animals.


Both agencies exempt products of small businesses however, each agency has its own criteria for defining a small business. Originally FDA used gross sales to define a small business, but due to a congressional mandate, FDA revised the small-business exemption, basing it on the number of full-time equivalent employees and units of product produced in a year. USDA's exemption criteria are based on the number of employees and pounds of product produced annually.


Dr Min Shah had just finished vocational training and this was her first partnership. I found her extremely likeable and honest and soon developed a good working relationship with her. Jean Young had worked for ICI, and latterly Zeneca, for many years in its research department. She was a highly qualified nurse and had met Dr Fairhurst many years ago when he was working in a Liverpool hospital. She had decided to set up her own business coordinating pharmaceutical trials. Geoff had suggested that she rented a room in our surgery and work from the practice, recruiting patients from our list. She was a forthright and honest woman and I had no problems in agreeing to this proposal. Before long Jean came to me with her own concerns regarding Dr Fairhurst's conduct in his trials. She was concerned regarding lack of informed consent and poor drug accountability. She had discovered this while assisting Dr Fairhurst with his work while he was on holiday.

The Transplanters

Peters and Antman overlapped at the Farber but were highly competitive. Yet, their de facto collaboration would be a major factor driving HDC ABMT for breast cancer treatment. Peters would use STAMP I as his treatment regimen Antman would later use STAMP V. Peters and Antman were accomplished clinical scientists engaged in BMT. Both became advocates within medicine for the use of HDC ABMT for treating breast cancer and for coverage of clinical trials by health insurers. They provided leadership for transplanters interested in breast cancer. Over time, others (oncologists, hospital administrators, and entrepreneurs) would join them, all inclined to believe that the promising but experimental HDC ABMT was better than conventional therapy for breast cancer. Henderson saw things differently. He had developed HDC regimens without ABMT in the 1970s but grew increasingly skeptical in the following decade as scientific evidence supporting HDC ABMT failed to materialize.

The Vision

We asked the National Down Syndrome Society's Self-Advocate Advisory Board (a group comprised of teens and adults with Down syndrome who want to make a difference for themselves, their friends, and future generations) the following question What are your goals, visions, and dreams for the future Their answers, not surprisingly, were not much different than those you would expect from a group of nondisabled teens and adults. One self-advocate from New Hampshire wished to graduate from her local high school and attend college another young man from California wished to live in his own home another from Ohio wanted to own her own business and another from New Jersey wanted to have friends.

Case study

After surgery John and his wife were told the diagnosis and the colostomy was explained to them. They were told that the colostomy was reversible in a few months after John had recovered. John found this news of his colostomy very difficult to take in. He was a subcontracted, self-employed lorry driver and had little day-to-day access to a toilet with private facilities to cope with appliance changing.


Most dentists in the United States practice as independent entrepreneurs either individually or in small groups. Nevertheless, dental care generally is not viewed as an ordinary commodity in the marketplace. Instead, the vast majority of dentists and most people in the larger community think of dentistry as a profession. That is, they consider dental care to be a component of healthcare and consider dentists to be experts in the relevant knowledge and skills, committed individually and collectively as professionals to giving priority to their patients' well-being as they practice their expertise. Consequently, when a person becomes a dentist, he or she makes a commitment to the larger community and accepts the obligations and ethical standards of the dental profession. Those obligations and standards are the subject matter of the subdiscipline called dental ethics.

Abmt Breast Cancer

High-dose chemotherapy with autologous bone marrow transplantation (HDC ABMT) emerged in the late 1980s as a promising new treatment for metastatic breast cancer, then for high-risk breast cancer. Its promise was based on high levels of complete and partial tumor response. In the 1990s, HDC ABMT burst on the oncology scene and was catapulted into widespread use before careful evaluation. The unconfirmed promise of this procedure drove clinical practice, health insurance coverage decisions, court decisions about coverage of individual patients, and federal administrative and state legislative mandates of HDC ABMT as a covered benefit. Entrepreneurial oncology then exploited a lucrative market. Thomas C. Chamberlin (1843-1928), an eminent geologist and academician, wrote a paper, The Method of Multiple Working Hypotheses, first published in Science (old series) in 1890 and republished in1965 (Chamberlin 1965). He advanced his method as superior to that of the ruling theory and that of...
