    Spheres of Influence: Illustration, Notation, and John Dalton's Conceptual Toolbox, 1803–1835.Gillian Gass - 2007 - Annals of Science 64 (3):349-382.
    In the early years of the nineteenth century, the English chemist John Dalton developed his atomic theory, a set of theoretical commitments describing the nature of atoms and the rules guiding their interactions and combinations. In this paper, I examine a set of conceptual and illustrative tools used by Dalton in developing his theory as well as in presenting it to the public in printed form as well as in his many public lectures. These tools—the concept of ‘atmosphere’, the pile (...)

    Collectivity in Context: Modularity, Cell Sociology, and the Neural Crest.Gillian Gass & Brian K. Hall - 2007 - Biological Theory 2 (4):349-359.
    Modularity has become a central and remarkably useful concept in evolutionary developmental biology, offering an explanation of how independent, interacting units make possible developmental events and evolutionary changes. These modules exist at several different levels of organization, from genes to signal transduction pathways to cell populations. Cell populations, which are multicellular modules, provide an opportunity both to clarify our notion of modularity and to reexamine such central concepts as cell-to-cell communication. Rosine Chandebois’s work on “cell sociology” is reframed in the (...)
