Reviews This is a deeply researched book that will make you think. It is beautiful, and it is important I recommend it to anyone—optimist or pessimist, female or male—with a healthy dash of curiosity and a cranium. American Scientist A truly outstanding book that will hopefully shape our future vision of what is meant by objectivity, from an epistemic as well as from an ethical and aesthetical point of view.

Image and Narrative As Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison point out in their capacious and engaging study of the concept of scientific objectivity from the 17th century to the present day, the universal form is key to understanding how modern science moved from the study of curiosities, through the representations of perfect, notional specimens, to a concept of objectivity as responsibility for science. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Endorsements Historically brilliant, philosophically profound, and beautifully written, Objectivity will be the focus of discussion for decades to come.

At one and the same time a history of scientific objectivity and a history of the scientific self, rarely have rigor and imagination been combined so seamlessly and to such deep effect. No one who opens this book can fail to be engaged and provoked by its energy, ideas, and arguments.

One emerges from reading it as if from a series of intellectual earthquakes—sound but no longer safe. It is almost shockingly original, genuinely profound, and amazingly learned without ever being pedantic. It should force everyone interested in science and its history or in objectivity and its history to think more deeply about what they think they already know.

It gives me great satisfaction to learn that thinking and writing of this brilliance and depth are still going on, even in this age of consumerism and mass markets.

This splendid book will be for many years the ultimate compendium on the joint history of objectivity and visualization.
