Recommends it for: bilimsel yazın yazmayı planlayanlar, akademisyen adayları, biliminsanı adayları
Nispeten genel geçer, yüzeysel tavsiyelerden oluşan kitabın kendisine fazla yorumum yok. Benim yorumum yayıncılıktan, editörlükten ve çeviriden bahsedecek.
Öncelikle "Bilimadamı" ifadesi neden var? Kitabın gerek anadilinden baskısında gerekse de içeriğinde böyle cinsiyetçi bir ifade geçmezken Tübitak bunu neden tercih etmiş akıl alır şey değil. Çevirmen seçmiş desek, çevirmen bir kadın ve kitabın içeriğinde tüm biliminsanı kelimelerini "bilimci" olarak çevirmiş. Oysa TÜBİTAK kitabın ismini "Bilimadam

Medawar is one of a handful of classics on my science communication book shelf.

It is eloquently written and delves into many of the challenges of producing scientific knowledge for the public. Anyone with a science degree from university embarking on a career in research would benefit from Medawar's advice. If you are involved in science and you have not read it, I recommend it. Each time you open it and reread, some new insights are sparked off.

Lately it provoked me to ponder the relationship

Advice To A Young Scientist is a book by P. B. Medawar for folks keen on entering research. Medawar won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1960 for his research on why immune systems reject organ transplants. Medawar's writing is meticulous and a joy to read. Though the former half of the book deals with practical information for the newbie, the latter turns into a treatise on science and the scientific method. Not bad reading at all.

Una buena cantidad de los consejos son oportunos y vigentes para los aspirantes a científicos, al mismo tiempo anima y amplía el panorama los estudiantes de carreras científicas. Si bien algunos consejos no están "tan actualizados", es una lectura recomendada para el joven aspirante a científico.

"The belief of Comenius that the pursuit of universal learning "to be acquired and applied to the benefit of all men for the common good" is truly via lucis, the way of light." Medawar

This book really gives great encouragement and enlightens his readers on the perks of being a scientist. Honestly, Medawar brings back the interest I have for science where creativity and imagination is one of the few essential things needed. Although it is a little hard to read in terms of the vocabula

Accessible and down-to-Earth. All the more so when you consider that it is written by a Noble Prize Laureate. As his background is fundamental research, scientific researchers may get more out of this book. Though it is definitely worth the read for any branch of science. Based on a career spanning several decades Peter Medawar amicably shares insights into areas from the choice of research topics and careers, showing respect to older colleagues and collaborators, to the limits of the scientific ...more

kapsamlı olsun derken bahsedilen konular çok yüzeysel anlatılmış sanki. bazı bölümleri (örn; bilimci veya daha iyi bir bilimci olmak için kendimi nasıl hazırlayabilirim?) daha fazla açması şahane olurdu. ama yine de nobel ödüllü bir bilim adamının şahsi fikirlerini okumak zevkliydi.

Organ nakli konusunda yaptığı çalışmalarla Nobel ödülü alan Prof. Dr. Medawar'ın kitabını okumak isteyip de üşenenlere önemli bulduğum alıntılar ile özetlemek isterim ..
- Bilimcilerin ortak zayıf tarafı, bir hipoteze aşık olup, hayır yanıtını kabullenememektir. Çok sevilen bu hipotezle yaşanan aşk değerli yılların ziyan olması ile sonuçlanır.
- Kütüphanecilerin yer sorunu nedeniyle kullanılmayan maden ocaklarında depoladıkları çok çok eski yayınlara referans yapmak.

Medawar advocates a young scientist to inspirit the role of scientific meliorism: the world can and should be improved through their insights and skills. Throughout, Medawar bestows the distilled wisdom that research neophytes accept the candid challenge of scientific inquisition with unbreakable enthusiasm, humility instead of egotistical prowess, and embosom the role of opportunity and chance in success as remarked by Fontenelle:

‘Ces hasards ne sont que pour ceux quijouent bien!’

Lise ve üniversite öğrencilerinin okumasında fayda var. Herhangi bir konuda bize öğüt verildiğinde içten içe zaten bunu bildiğimizi düşünürüz. Ancak öğütleri başkasının dilinden dinlemeye ihtiyacımız vardır. Bu kitap da onu sağlıyor. Sağduyu, tecrübe ve birikimle harmanlanmış tespitleri (siz zaten çoğunu bilseniz de), değerli bir bilim adamının cümlelerinden okumak fırsatı veriyor. Ancak kimi bölümlerin anlaşılması zor gelebilir. Bunun tercümeden kaynaklandığını düşünüyorum. Türkçe tercümesini b ...more

Wonderful short read. And by the great Sir Peter Medawar, who is as good a science writer as he is a scientist. You are not alone in your fears of inadequacy starting out as a scientist. It's a learning process, filled with mistakes and embarrassments. That's how scientists get so good at what they do. Loved it that I came across this book at a time when I am starting out as a full-time researcher as well.

(A witty collection of mostly useful) advice to a young scientist (that may or may not still be relevant).
I don't personally know if many people starting out research careers today have quite the ambitions of young scientists addressed by Medawar, I feel people these days might be a little less naive and arrogant, but I still had a few of my own questions answered. Plus, Medawar's writing is worth reading in and of itself, and the occasional roast and burn are quite on point.

I don't read self-help books, but I guess in a way, this book counts as one. However, the advice in this book isn't the type of advice that's meant to be inspirational but unhelpful. It's very practical (and occasionally funny) and it covers various topics (each in short chapters). I've decided to write down some of the things that I found particularly interesting:

- If you try your hand at research and find yourself indifferent to or bored by it, you should leave science without any

A wonderful book for those who wish to embark on a career in science. The pragmatic advice will help all young researchers to see the grey areas of the profession in illumination. The erudition of Dr Medawar is exemplary, worth emulating by all, young and old.

The importance of the strength of our conviction is only to provide a proportionately strong incentive to find out if the hypothesis will stand up to critical evaluation.

An exquisite and essential book to demystify a scientist's career. Many great advice that should have followed.
Miguel LG
Creo que este libro se puede juzgar al menos desde dos perspectivas. Juzgado respecto al objetivo declarado por el autor, creo que los consejos que Medawar ofrece están muy ligados al momento y lugar en que vivió, a una forma de organización institucional y a las costumbres de la comunidad científica a la que pertenecía. Por estas mismas razones, la utilidad de sus opiniones fuera de este contexto es muy limitada.  Aunque hay algunas ideas interesantes, sobretodo en las últimas secciones, franca ...more

In this scientific era, good guidance for the researchers is essential. Author P.B. Medawar recognized this need long back and being researcher by himself, he has compiled few guidelines for the researchers starting their career in this field as title suggests.
Author has tried to be as concise as possible. Book touches most of the important aspects like how you will think about research, how to present oneself into world. This book is more about the setting correct philosophy for the young rese

If I were to ask a scientist to distill the essential aspects of being a scientist, the result would be this book. Concise yet thorough, this book is written by a cellular immunologist and does a good job highlighting some of personal challenges scientists may face. Though Medawar doesn't dwell much on too many anecdotes, he conveys his point reasonably well. The book is incredibly organized, in ways only a scientist could have, which each aspect neatly classified and aptly acknowledged and disc ...more

I thought I had better read "Adivce to a Young Scientist" before I finished my PhD! The text does offer sound advice in some areas, such as writing a manuscript, but is severly dated when it attempts to give advice about how to build a relationship with your PhD supervisor or how to give a talk at a conference. The last few chapters on the scientific method should be required reading for all young scientists, however, I feel that a more modern text on a similar topic will provide actual better a ...more

Cualquiera que esté involucrado alguna carrera, o por gusto, de investigación científica se beneficiaría con los consejos de Medawar. Aún cuando este libro no está actualizado a la época presente, el contenido es relevante y toca aspectos importantes, para el estudioso y quien busca el saber, como la forma en que cualquiera se puede acercar a la investigación y cómo podemos ir moldeando diferentes ideas de cualquier tema, todo con base al método científico.

It is a little dated, but it's easy to see why it's a classic.

This book is inspiring (as one might expect from such a distinguished scientist) but it lacks any trace of ego and is purposely written to be accessible (I'm looking at you, Richard Feynman). I also love that he is encouraging to those who are minorities in STEM.

I was about to set this aside as being too intellectually challenging. Then I realised a challenge is exactly what I had hoped for in this 100 One Night Reads project! This was a good read with many useful insights.
Roberto Rigolin F Lopes
What a show by this Medawar Sir guy discussing the challenges of being a hypothesis maker/tester; the latter two should always go together. Advice have little use but these are at least entertaining. Not to mention that listen to such practical mind is always refreshing.

This is really a book for "young scientist". If you are a college or high school student, it's probably good for you. Otherwise, it's likely too basic.

It's a very good book though difficult to comprehend in the first read (about 80% of the times), it's worth it, inspiring, satisfying; written with a fine English.

“In choosing topics for research and departments to enlist in, a young scientist must beware of following fashion. It is one thing to fall into step with a great concerted movement of thought such as molecular genetics or cellular immunology, but quite another merely to fall in with prevailing fashion for, say, some new histochemical procedure or technical gimmick.” 1 likes
