Daston and Galison write the history of the emergence of scientific objectivity, beginning in the eighteenth century and proceeding into the present day. This magisterial study reveals practices of scientific image-making as constitutive of both selves and communities. They identify three kinds of representation within science-- Truth-to-Nature, Mechanical Objectivity, and Trained Judgement-- in order to chart the epistemic shifts in objectivity as an organizing concept.
