    Degeneration Under the Microscope at the Fin Se Siècle.Christopher Lawrence - 2009 - Annals of Science 66 (4):455-471.
    Theories of familial, racial, and national degeneration in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have been explored by historians in the context of social and moral pathology.

    Science Incarnate: Historical Embodiments of Natural Knowledge.Christopher Lawrence & Steven Shapin (eds.) - 1998 - University of Chicago Press.
