Macrakis on Science in Nazi Germany

External News Details

"That is one reason to be sceptical of the common claim ...that science can flourish only in a free society. Historians of science in Nazi Germany such as Kristie Macrakis (in her book Surviving the Swastika) have challenged this assertion, which is not made true simply because we would like it to be so. Authoritarian regimes are perfectly capable of putting pragmatism before ideology." Macrakis is professor in the School of History, Technology, and Society. Source: Nature - March 7, 2012
