Resumo

Os Sartons, pai e filha são apresentados, analisados e cotejados neste artigo. George, o pai, era um erudito e historiador da ciência. A filha era uma artista e poetisa bem conhecida. As origens culturais, as relações familiares, as atitudes em relação à ciência, ao amor e à sexualidade são discutidas neste artigo, que assume uma postura muito crítica da biografia autorizada de May. O autor sustenta que para entender May, é importante conhecer George, que gerou as “filhas gêmeas”, May e Isis, um dos principais periódicos internacionais de história da ciência.

Abstract

The Sartons, father and daughter are presented, analyzed and paralleled in this paper. George, the father, was a scholar and historian of science. The daughter was well known as a poet and woman of letters. Cultural background, family relations, attitudes in life regarding science, love and sexuality, are discussed in this paper, which departs from the treatment in May's authorized biography. The author contends that to understand May, it is important to know George, who fathered the “twins daughters”,
May and Isis, one of the major international journal in history of science.
