Example text

We have seen that learned academies or societies increased in number throughout the eighteenth century. Though some of these bodies covered humanities as well as the social and natural sciences (in the UK, for example, one finds the tide "Literary and Philosophical Society" appearing), there was already a tendency for such activities to separate. Topics like medicine and agriculture also saw themselves as distinctive and had their own societies. However, the real diversification of societies occurred in the nineteenth century, as national bodies for geology, chemistry, and so forth appeared in Europe and North America.

The apotheosis of this approach is in high-energy physics, where teams of 50 or more researchers, research students, and technicians may be involved in one experiment. An individual research student is concerned with a very specific activity, such as computer-based handling of the data generated. However, experience varies with the subject: being a small cog in a large wheel occurs in big, expensive research projects. Elsewhere, the model where each research student learns a similar range of skills, though each may be working on parallel projects, remains common.

It was then expected that each university would have only one established professorial chair in a given subject. Consequently, the number of academic posts available in that subject could only expand up to the point where all the universities had established chairs. Further expansion depended on the field becoming further differentiated until it could produce a recognizably distinct subfield that deserved its own professorial appointments. Thus physiology originally formed a part of anatomy. However, as research in physiology expanded in the nineteenth century, not all professors of anatomy felt able to teach both topics.
