    Why Should I Read Histories of Science? A Response to Patricia Fara, Steve Fuller and Joseph Rouse.Mark Erickson - 2010 - History of the Human Sciences 23 (4):68-91.
    History of science is, we are told, an important subject for study. Its rise in recent years to become a ‘stand alone’ discipline has been mirrored by an expansion of popular history of science texts available in bookstores. Given this, it is perhaps surprising that little attention has been given to how history of science is written. This article attempts to do that through constructing a typology of histories of science based upon a consideration of audiences who read these texts (...)

    Lowered Serum Cholesterol, Famine and Aggression: A Darwinian Hypothesis.Mark T. Erickson - 1997 - Social Science Information 36 (2):211-222.
    Lowering serum cholesterol, which appears to reduce mortality due to cardiovascular disease, may also increase mortality due to violent causes, including homicide, suicide and accidents. In animal research, lowering cholesterol has been linked to increased aggression. These findings suggest a Darwinian interpretation. During evolutionary history a reduction in serum cholesterol was probably invariably associated with famine. In times of famine an increased propensity for aggression may be adaptive as the struggle for survival intensifies. Evidence suggests that lowering cholesterol reduces CNS (...)

    Homer in the Laboratory: A Feyerabendian Experiment in Sociology of Science.Mark Erickson - 2018 - Social Epistemology 32 (2):128-141.
    For philosopher of science Paul Feyerabend, an outcome of the Plato-led victory of philosophers over poets is the ‘conquest of abundance’ where abstraction replaces the ‘richness of being’. This poignant motif is visible in the project of the social sciences, where theory describes classificatory schemas that can be imposed upon the social world to categorise and, subsequently, explain it. However, Homer’s writings provide a completely different frame of reference. By reimagining ourselves within this work we may be able to rethink (...)
