The whole endeavor has been made possible thanks to the International Advanced Study Program set up by the Maison des sciences de Homme, Paris, in collaboration with Reid Hall, Columbia University in Paris. It is my pleasure to express to these institutions my deepest gratitude.

I completed the writing of the introduction at the Dibner Institute, MIT, to which I am pleased to address my heartfelt thanks. Stays at the Max Planck Institute, Berlin, in 2007, and at Le Mas Pascal, Cavillargues, in 2008 and 2009, have provided the quietness needed to complete the project.

Thanks for that to Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, Jean-Pascal Jullien, and Gilles Vandenbroeck. For the preparation of this volume, the core members of the group acted as an editorial board. I express my deepest gratitude to those who accepted the anonymous work of being referees. Micah Ross, Guo Yuanyuan, Wang Xiaofei, Leonid Zhmud, and Zhu Yiwen have played a key role in the elaboration of this book.

I have pleasure here in expressing my deepest thanks to them as well as to those who read versions of this introduction: Bruno Belhoste, Evelyn Fox Keller, Ramon Guardians, and Jacques Virbel.
