    Distributing Discovery' between Watt and Cavendish: A Reassessment of the Nineteenth-Century 'Water Controversy.David Philip Miller - 2002 - Annals of Science 59 (2):149-178.
    Contention about who discovered the compound nature of water occurred in two phases. During the first phase, in the 1780s, the claimants to the discovery produced the work on which their claims were based. This phase of controversy was relatively short and did not generate much heat, although it was part of the larger debates surrounding the 'chemical revolution'. The second phase of controversy, in the 1830s and 1840s, saw heated exchanges in Britain between advocates of Watt on the one (...)

    The story of ‘Scientist: The Story of a Word’.David Philip Miller - 2017 - Annals of Science 74 (4):255-261.
    SUMMARYThis examination of an important paper by Sydney Ross is the first in a projected series of occasional reflections on ‘Annals of Science Classic Papers’ that have had enduring utility within the field of history of science and beyond. First the messages of the paper are examined, some well known but others, particularly Ross's own contemporary concerns about the use of the word ‘scientist’, less so. The varied uses made of the paper by scholars are then traced before Ross's biography (...)

    The Political Economy of Discovery Stories: The Case of Dr Irving Langmuir and General Electric.David Philip Miller - 2011 - Annals of Science 68 (1):27-60.
    Summary The rhetorical uses of discovery and invention stories are legion, but of particular concern in this paper are those that are deployed for economic or commercial reasons, especially in claiming intellectual property rights, usually in the form of patents. The case of stories about Dr Irving Langmuir (1881?1957) of the General Electric Research Laboratory, who won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1932 and was the first industry-based laureate from the United States, is examined. Langmuir won the prize for (...)

    Seeing the Chemical Steam through the Historical Fog: Watt's Steam Engine as Chemistry.David Philip Miller - 2008 - Annals of Science 65 (1):47-72.
    Summary James Watt (1736?1819) is best known as an engineer who dramatically improved the efficiency of the steam engine. What we take to be his chemical interests are conventionally seen as peripheral to his main line of work. He is usually treated as a chemist in three main contexts: his ?practical? chemical work relating to chlorine bleaching, varnishes, pottery, and so on; his work with Thomas Beddoes on the medicinal uses of various ?airs?; his, much disputed, claim as a chemical (...)
