July-September 2005 (vol. 27 no. 3)
pp. 93-95
Ra? Rojas, Freie Universit?t Berlin
This issue features book reviews of The Turing Text: Verbal Behavior as the Hallmark of Intelligence, edited by Stuart M. Shieber; So Many Hills to Climb by Arthur Porter; and The Triumph of Numbers: How They Shaped Modern Life by I. Bernard Cohen.

1. Three texts interested me on this subject: I.B. Cohen, ed., The Natural Sciences and the Social Sciences:Some Critical and Historical Perspectives, Kluwer Academic, 1994. I particularly enjoyed T.M. Porter's article, "From Quetelet to Maxwell: Social Statistics and the Origins of Statistical Physics" in that collection. J.L. Heilbron et al., eds., The Quantifying Spirit in the 18th Century, Univ. of Calif., Berkeley, Press, 1990. T.M. Porter, Trust in Numbers: The Pursuit of Objectivity in Science and Public Life, Princeton Univ. Press, 1995.
