Making Sense: Constructing Knowledge in the Arts and Sciences
Houghton Mifflin, Aug 1, 2001 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 661 pages
A cross-disciplinary reader, Making Sense teaches students how knowledge is constructed as well as communicated through the exploration of significant issues from across the curriculum. Thirty-eight contemporary essays--drawn from the humanities, social sciences, and sciences--demonstrate a range of methods to make sense.Chapters 2 and 3 cover the writing process and research methods, including database and Internet searches. Part II contains the rich anthology of current essays, alphabetically arranged, with accompanying apparatus. In Part III, students put abstract concepts into practice by reevaluating previous readings or revisiting their earlier papers. Part IV includes specially commissioned essays by professors on writing in their specific disciplines.
