Compare Svarovsky, Forsythe and Latour

By looking back the three papers, I am wondering how big the influence the perspectives of the author have upon their research results. On one hand, we seemed to blame the results from Svarovsky are very "plain to engineers", "it is not new to engineers", on the other hand, we seemed to blame Forsythe was kind of judgmental in a lot of the comments. But the good thing is the latter saw something we as engineers have taken for granted. As engineering educators, borrowing different lenses from other disciplines could render new perspectives to our own disciplines. We don't need to buy all the results, but to see things from different perspectives will certainly help our own development.
