From 9/2010 – 4/2011:

Menachem Fisch studies major upheavals in science and mathematics from the perspective of those who set them in motion. In a series of related early Victorian case studies, he shows how leading practitioners come to doubt heartfelt commitments, and groping toward new possibilities, produce hybrid, yet highly transformative works.
