Joseph W. Dauben is a Herbert H. Lehman Distinguished Professor of History at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.[1] He obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard University.

His Fields of expertise are history of science, history of mathematics, the scientific revolution, sociology of science, intellectual history, 17-18th centuries, history of Chinese science, and the history of botany.

His book Abraham Robinson was reviewed positively by Moshé Machover, but he noted that it avoids discussing any of Robinson's negative aspects, and "in this respect [the book] borders on the hagiographic, painting a portrait without warts."[2]

Dauben in a 1980 Guggenheim Fellow.[3]

He is a a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences (since 1982). [4]

Dauben is an elected member (1991) of the International Academy of the History of Science.[5] and an elected foreign member (2001) of German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.[6]

Dauben delivered an invited lecture at the 1998 International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin on Karl Marx's mathematical work.[7]

In 2002 Dauben became an honorary member of the Institute for History of Natural Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.[4][8]

In 1985-1994 Dauben served as the Chair of the Executive Committee of the International Commission on History of Mathematics.[9]
