    Textbooks have to be rewritten in whole or in part in the aftermath of each scientific revolution, and, once rewritten, they inevitably disguise not only the role but the very existence of the revolutions that produced them. This process can be observed in the new textbooks issuing from the “quiet revolution” that marked the emergence of control engineering as a discipline. By the end ... View full abstract»
