In a previous article, science and how science operates was discussed from a philosophical point of view. In this article, the history of the Germ Theory of Disease (and hence a large part of the history of microbiology) is discussed from the philosophical perspective presented in the first article. The history presented in this article is not intended to be definitive but rather to view the history of the Germ Theory of Disease from a different perspective.
