Funding Information:
Most of the papers in this special issue emerged from the 32nd Annual International Workshop on the History and Philosophy of Science: ‘New Directions in the Historiography of Genetics,’ which took place in November 2019 at the Cohn Institute of History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas, Tel Aviv University, Israel. The workshop was generously funded by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute. We would like to thank the authors who have contributed to this special issue, as well as our colleagues at the Inter-University History and Philosophy of Life Sciences program, the Cohn Institute, and the Van Leer Institute. The work of writing the history of genetics continues. And while it would seem that Churchill did not promise to ensure his posterity by writing his own history (though he tried to do so in practice), he did say these sage words: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”
