This chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the geographical aspects or dimensions of science in the nineteenth century. The essays in this volume reveal the remarkable range of sites in which scientific concerns have been engaged, all of which are mappable locations embedded in wider systems of meaning, identity and authority. This volume also considers various proposals with regard to the organizational structures and conceptual taxonomies involved in understanding the geography of science.

Keywords:   science, nineteenth century, meaning, identity, authority, organizational structures, taxonomies, geography of science
