Synopsis :

Science is continually confronted by new and difficult social and ethical problems. Some of these problems have arisen from the transformation of the academic science of the prewar period into the industrialized science of the present. Traditional theories of science are now widely recognized as obsolete. In Scientific Knowledge and Its Social Problems (originally published in 1971), Jerome R. Ravetz analyzes the work of science as the creation and investigation of problems. He demonstrates the role of choice and value judgment, and the inevitability of error, in scientific research. Ravetz?s new introductory essay is a masterful statement of how our understanding of science has evolved over the last two decades.

A propos de l'auteur:

Jerome R. Ravetz is an environmental consultant and academic. He is best known for his books challenging the assumptions of scientific objectivity, discussing the science wars and post-normal science. Ravetz is an Associate Fellow at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
