A rhetoric of interdisciplinary scientific discourse: Textual criticism of Dobzhansky's genetics and the origin of species

Social Epistemology 9 (2):91 – 111 (1995)
Abstract This paper is a close textual criticism of Theodosius Dobzhansky's Genetics and the Origin of Species. It argues that the book succeeds as interdisciplinary communication by promoting polysemy. The professional goals of two scientific communities are embedded in the text in such a way that each audience reads the call for co?operative action as implicit support for their own methods
