Pasteur's Empire shows how the scientific prestige of the Pasteur Institute came to depend on its colonial laboratories, and how, conversely, the institutes themselves became central to colonial politics.

Today, we owe all the discoveries in the fields of microbiology and immunology to his work. Pasteur came from a long line of peasants. The first section of the book, which retells the story of Pasteur, is a vivid description of an approach to science whose theoretical implications go far beyond a particular case study.

In the second part of the book, "Irreductions," Latour sets out his notion of the dynamics of conflict and interaction, of 1/5(1). In the s, the Pasteur Institute established a network of laboratories that stretched across France's empire, from Indochina to West Africa.

Quickly, researchers at these laboratories became central to France's colonial project, helping officials monopolize industries, develop public health codes, establish disease containment measures, and arbitrate political conflicts around questions of.

The Institut Pasteur is an internationally renowned center for biomedical research that stands out in many disciplines. By deciphering the fundamental mechanisms of living organisms, its researchers contribute to the advancement of knowledge that leads to cutting-edge.

Germ theory, or the pathogenic theory of medicine, postulates that micro-organisms are the cause of many diseases. Although originally controversial, Louis Pasteur in the 19th century proved beyond doubt that harmful bacteria within the body are the cause of many diseases.

Two of his main contributions to science and medicine are the anthrax and rabies vaccines. His work set the foundation for some of the most important advances in our modern world. Pasteur was an experimentalist of the highest order, and his science was undoubtedly fueled by his faith. Today, it is hard for us to fully appreciate the great revolution in medicine known as “germ theory” and the role that animal research played in its development.

It seems impossible that people once believed that foul odors could create disease or that “evil spirits” could cause a person to become ill. We have also forgotten how rare it was for parents to see all of their children.

As it happens, the same two areas of Pasteur’s research also draw the eye of Gerald Geison, whose book is concerned with what he calls Pasteur’s "private science." Geison defines "private science" as "those scientific activities, techniques, practices, and thoughts that take place more or.

He then showed the role of living microbes in the fermentation and putrefaction by: UNESCO proclaimed as “The Year of Pasteur.” Just prior to that, Pasteur’s family proudly released his notes and research. Gerald Geison, a science historian, was among the first people to thoroughly review those notes.
