1998 ended with an article on Understanding tidal friction where Peter Brosche provided us with a most entertaining history of science in a nutshell. He described how our understanding of tidal friction has developed over the last few centuries and punctuated his description with a series of apt and amusing aphorisms. Many readers will discover that these are also highly applicable to their own fields of scientific competence!
For those who believe that modern evidence-based medicine has all the answers, they should take a stroll with E.J. Wormer through the history of medicine and read his article on A taste for salt.
