The Nationalization of Scientific Knowledge in the Habsburg Empire, 1848–1918

  • Mitchell G. Ash

About this book


This volume challenges the widespread belief that scientific knowledge as such is international. Employing case studies from Austria, Poland, the Czech lands, and Hungary, the authors show how scientists in the late Habsburg Monarchy simultaneously nationalized and internationalized their knowledge.
