    22 February 2011 The pre-history of the Fellowship of Engineering - Dr Peter Collins, Director of the Royal Society Centre for History of Science The early 1960s saw Britain indulge in one of its periodic bouts of anxiety about its industrial performance and declining international competitiveness. One of the root causes was ascribed to the low status of technology. The Royal Society, credited with securing the high social status of 'pure' science, found itself in the spotlight -- variously as the body that had failed to secure analogously high status for technology or as the only body that could possibly do so. The only alternative would be to create a wholly new body for the task. The Royal Society rose to the challenge of presenting itself as the champion of technology -- which its...

Born in South Africa in 1929, Lewis Wolpert is a developmental biologist, author and broadcaster. He proposed the French Flag model, explaining positional information in development.

[Listener: Eleanor Lawrence] TRANSCRIPT: The chick limb work went... went well... it’s controversial, it’s certainly even now today not solved.

And then, in 1973, Waddington put me up for the Royal Society, and that’s a great compliment to be put up as a... become a possible Fellow of the Royal Society and you’re put up in the first instance for seven years and each year some committee looks at you and decides whether to accept you. And after six years I hadn’t been accepted and Waddington had died in the meantime and other people were... were involved, and then I must say, to my enormous pleasure, I became elected a Fellow in 1980 and in fact it was Peter Medawar, who phoned my secretary — Maureen Maloney — who I work with very closely, to say that I had, in fact, been elected. I can’t tell you how important it is to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. And when you become elected and you sit on the committees which try and decide who will be elected, you cannot get over the idea that you have been elected, because it’s so competitive, so... there are so many candidates and there are so few who actually become elected, there’re only 40 or so P... scientists a year, that get elected, but it is an enormous honour and it makes a very, very big difference and I was very, very grateful that I did in fact, become elected and I was on various committees of the Royal Society and that... that has been really quite important to me. And, of course, at this time, while I was doing all this science, I became involved in a different issue altogether and that is the actual relationship between science and the public, because what struck me, is how little science my non-scientific friends understood. And I gave a set of lectures — I don’t know why they invited me — in Warwick and on the base of those lectures I wrote a book called 'the'Unnatural Nature of Science', which I’m still very fond of that book, pointing out that any common sense view, that anyone has about the nature of the world, it will be scientifically false. It... Is it not against all common sense, that when you’re going at 400 miles an hour in an aeroplane, there is no force acting on you? Force does not cause motion, it causes acceleration. That’s as Newton pointed out, but it’s so counterintuitive as to be absolutely bizarre, and when it comes to complicated things like cells or molecules or quantum mechanics, things become absolutely impossible; science really is unnatural. And I think it’s very important that people really realise that science doesn’t fit easily with common sense. I know it’s been argued, and I... argued, that science is organised common sense, but it’s very highly organised common sense. And I really... that was the second book. I’d also written a book... 'The Triumph of the Embryo'. I was married to Jill Neville, a writer at the time, and she persuaded me to give it that title and it was for the general public that I wrote this book about how embryos develop. It was too complicated, they didn’t... the general public didn’t really... didn’t really understand it and I also, in those days, was doing interviews on the radio and I interviewed many, many major scientists... oh, Francis Crick, Sydney Brenner, all sorts of people and we published these — Oxford University Press — I’m delighted to say, published this. I did these interviews with Alison Richards, we travelled around the world and they were published in two volumes called 'A Passion for Science' and 'Passionate Minds' and I want to say, I think they’re a... a very nice... nice set of interviews. And then, about 15 years ago, I got a very severe depression. I still don’t understand why I became depressed. I was happily married, I was a professor at the university, I was 65 years old, everything was fine. I was having a minor heart problem, but I went into a very severe depression and was even hospitalised at the Royal Free for three weeks, because I was suicidal. I knew nothing about depression and I eventually recovered, I was put on antidepressants and I had... I also had cognitive therapy. And I eventually got better. I was living in this very flat where we’re sit... sitting now, and when I was ill, I discovered that my wife at that time — Jill Neville — never told anyone that I was depressed, she said the stigma will be too bad. And I thought, that’s bloody ridiculous... read the rest of the transcript at (https://www.webofstories.com/play/lewis.wolpert/17)

He is best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, providing the foundation for Bose–Einstein statistics and the theory of the Bose–Einstein condensate. A Fellow of the Royal Society, he was awarded India's second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan in 1954 by the Government of India. The class of particles that obey Bose–Einstein statistics, bosons, was named after him by Paul Dirac. A self-taught scholar and a polyglot, he had a wide range of interests in varied fields including physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, philosophy, arts, literature and music. He served on many research and development committees in independent India. Bose was born in Calcutta (now Kolkata), India, the eldest of seven children. He was the only son, with six sisters after him. His ancestral home was in village Bara Jagulia, in the district of Nadia, in the district of West Bengal. His schooling began at the age of five, near his home. When his family moved to Goabagan, he was admitted to the New Indian School. In the final year of school, he was admitted to the Hindu School. He passed his entrance examination (matriculation) in 1909 and stood fifth in the order of merit. He next joined the intermediate science course at the Presidency College, Calcutta, where he was taught by illustrious teachers such as Jagadish Chandra Bose, Sarada Prasanna Das, and Prafulla Chandra Ray. As a polyglot, he was well versed in several languages such as Bengali, English, French, German and Sanskrit as well as the poetry of Lord Tennyson, Rabindranath Tagore and Kalidasa. He could also play the esraj, a musical instrument similar to a violin. He was actively involved in running night schools that came to be known as the Working Men's Institute Satyendra Nath Bose, along with Saha, presented several papers in theoretical physics and pure mathematics from 1918 onwards. In 1924, while working as a Reader (Professor without a chair) at the Physics Department of the University of Dhaka, Bose wrote a paper deriving Planck's quantum radiation law without any reference to classical physics by using a novel way of counting states with identical particles. This paper was seminal in creating the very important field of quantum statistics. Though not accepted at once for publication, he sent the article directly to Albert Einstein in Germany. Einstein, recognising the importance of the paper, translated it into German himself and submitted it on Bose's behalf to the prestigious Zeitschrift für Physik. As a result of this recognition, Bose was able to work for two years in European X-ray and crystallography laboratories, during which he worked with Louis de Broglie, Marie Curie, and Einstein. While presenting a lecture[18] at the reputable University of Dhaka on the theory of radiation and the ultraviolet catastrophe, Bose intended to show his students that the contemporary theory was inadequate, because it predicted results not in accordance with experimental results. In the process of describing this discrepancy, Bose for the first time took the position that the Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution would not be true for microscopic particles, where fluctuations due to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle will be significant. Thus he stressed the probability of finding particles in the phase space, each state having volume h3, and discarding the distinct position and momentum of the particles.

22 February 2011 The pre-history of the Fellowship of Engineering - Dr Peter Collins, Director of the Royal Society Centre for History of Science The early 1960s saw Britain indulge in one of its periodic bouts of anxiety about its industrial performance and declining international competitiveness. One of the root causes was ascribed to the low status of technology. The Royal Society, credited with securing the high social status of 'pure' science, found itself in the spotlight -- variously as the body that had failed to secure analogously high status for technology or as the only body that could possibly do so. The only alternative would be to create a wholly new body for the task. The Royal Society rose to the challenge of presenting itself as the champion of technology -- which its then President Howard Florey insisted was as much the province of the life sciences as of the physical sciences. By 1970, working with the Council of Engineering Institutions, the Society appeared to be winning the argument, general opinion having turned against the idea of a separate academy for engineering. Six years later, however, the CEI became the launchpad for just such an academy: the Fellowship of Engineering. This lecture, based mainly on a range of unpublished archival sources, will discuss how the Royal Society responded to the prospect of an additional academy and how the Fellowship of Engineering nevertheless came into being. It will consider the roles played by key Fellows of the Royal Society such as Gordon Sutherland and Alex Fleck, by campaigners such as Meredith Thring and by the CEI leadership and, not least, the careful and effective interventions of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. Dr Peter Collins Dr Peter Collins has a degree in chemistry and a PhD in the social history of science. He has worked at the Royal Society since 1981, when he was appointed to the first post in the Society's history devoted fulltime to science policy. Between 1986 and 1993 he ran the Science and Engineering Policy Studies Unit, a joint RS/FEng initiative. He was Director Science Policy at the Society till 2008, when he switched roles to become Director History of Science. He is currently researching a detailed book on the history of the Society over the last 50 years and enjoying interviewing some of the key figures from the period in the process.
