Product Overview

Although science was once seen as the product of individual great men working in isolation, we now realize that, like any other creative activity, science is a highly social enterprise, influenced in subtle as well as obvious ways by the wider culture and values of its time. "Scientific Knowledge is the first introduction to social studies of scientific knowledge.
The authors, all noted for their contributions to science studies, have organized this book so that each chapter examines a key step in the process of doing science. Using case studies from cognitive science, physics, and biology to illustrate their descriptions and applications of the social study of science, they show how this approach provides a crucial perspective on how science is actually done.
"Scientific Knowledge will be of interest not only to those engaged in science studies, but also to anyone interested in the practice of science.
