Subject Area
Das Wort Recycling wurde in den 1920er Jahren in der Ölindustrie verwendet. Es nimmt Bezug auf das sogenannte „Cracking“ bei der Ölgewinnung. Dies beschreibt Carson Fellow Simon Werrett mit dem Zusatz, dass der Begriff auch in der Raumfahrt verwendet wurde und dass das Verständnis für Recycling in der heutigen Zeit ein neues ist. Es hat sich erst entwickelt. Carson Fellow Simon Werrett ist Professor im Bereich Geschichte der Wissenschaften in Washington und Seattle mit einem Interesse an der Beziehung von Kunst und Wissenschaft in der Geschichte.
Science as a practical activity in history, and recycling-related practices in particular, is an important topic in the research of Carson Fellow Simon Werrett. In this work Simon Werrett is interested on the evolution of the term “recycling” and its adaptation within the scientific community. He explores the reception of the term by the engineering community in the 1920s and the adoption of it by the environmentalists in the “green discourse” in the 1960s. Prof. Dr. Werrett is a historian of science at the University of Washington. He is interested in the long-term historical relationships of the arts and sciences, in particular the ways domestic, artisanal, and industrial skills, techniques, and performances have shaped the development of the sciences.
