  1. David N. Livingstone (2007). Science, Site and Speech Scientific Knowledge and the Spaces of Rhetoric. History of the Human Sciences 20 (2):71-98.
    An awareness of the significance of location in the production and dissemination of scientific knowledge has brought a new dimension to recent work on the sociology of science. But the importance of speech in scientific enterprises has been less well developed. This article explores the idea of `spaces of speech' by underscoring the connections between location and locution. It develops a case study of how Darwinian evolution was talked about in different sites using examples from Ireland and the American South (...)

  4. David N. Livingstone (2004). Public Spectacle and Scientific Theory: William Robertson Smith and the Reading of Evolution in Victorian Scotland. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 35 (1):1-29.
    This paper examines the reaction of Victorian Presbyterian culture to the theory of evolution in late nineteenth century Scotland. Focusing on the role played by the Free Church theologian, biblical critic and anthropological theorist, William Robertson Smith, it argues that, compared with Smith’s radical scholarship, evolutionary theories did little to disturb the Scottish Calvinist mind-set.
