The name you are searching for is Evelyn Fox Keller, biographer
of Barbara McClintock, but also a philsopher of science.  Well
worth reading thoughtfully.

How about this:  a *real* scientist is one who does
*real* science.

I'm not trying to be cute, I mean it.  Everything
else is just credentials.
