Book Description :

A fascinating study of the emerging marginal sciences of the nineteenth century.

From the Back Cover :

'This is a significant, wide-ranging examination of Victorian scientific thought and practice, demonstrating that the boundaries between 'marginal' or 'pseudo' science and 'real' science need to be rethought.'
"Kirstie Blair, University of Oxford"
'Sciences' were named and formed with great speed in the nineteenth century. Yet what constitutes a 'true' science? The Victorian era facilitated the rise of practices such as phrenology and physiognomy, so-called sciences that lost their status and fell out of use rather swiftly. This collection of essays seeks to examine the marginalised sciences of the nineteenth century in an attempt to define the shifting centres of scientific thinking, specifically asking: how do some sciences emerge to occupy central ground and how do others become consigned to the margins?
The essays in this collection explore the influence of nineteenth-century culture on the rise of these sciences, investigating the emergence of marginal sciences such as scriptural geology and spiritualism. "Repositioning Victorian Sciences" is a valuable addition to our understanding of nineteenth-century science in its original context, and will also be of great interest to those studying the era as a whole.

Elisabeth Wadge is a professional writer and editor. Since completing her doctorate at the University of Cambridge on the influence of Victorian psychical research upon models of personality and narration, she has continued to supervise students for the English Tripos.
Alex Warwick is Head of the Department of English and Linguistics at the University of Westminster. Her research interests are mainly in the field of late nineteenth-century studies and the Gothic.
