Ørsted is best known for his discovery of electromagnetism in 1820, clearly his most important and arguably h is only significant contribution to ‘science’ understood as a body of knowledge pertaining to a canonical set of fundamental phenomena. Yet if by ‘science’ one understands the flesh-and-blood, words-on-paper world of ongoing human activity that produces such knowledge, then Ørsted’s contemporary significance looms much larger. It turns out that a striking amount of the work of other scientists became known principally through his agency, sometimes becoming so transformed in the process that what the larger world of science took, and continues to take, as others’ work in fact bears the strong stamp of Ørsted’s transmission. His fluency in German and French, his extensive European travels, and his wide circle of acquaintances all facilitated his personal influence.

  1. Entries for each author are listed chronologically roughly by date of publication, as near as could be determined or inferred. A month in parentheses at the end of the entry indicates the nominal date of the issue in which it was published, although its actual appearance might have been some months later. Such information may be lacking where I was unable to consult the journal directly. Since the numbering (or not) of plates sometimes varies within a single volume between roman and arabic numerals, I have been careful to distinguish between (for example) “pl. 2” and “pl. II.” When the plates are unnumbered, the number (Anzahl) of them is given as (for example) “1 pl.” When a journal was known to contemporaries by its editor (e.g. Gilbert‘s Annalen), his name is given in square brackets before the title of the journal. Pagination of a few works has been given where deemed useful. The following abbreviations are used:Google Scholar
