Technoscientific Angst by Raphael Sassower
Book DescriptionWhat responsibility do the Manhatten Project scientists have for the atomic devastation of Hiroshima? The Krupps scientists for the crematoriums at Auschwitz? This book considers two related phenomena - the positive public image of science as the citadel of truth and the objectivity and the angst displyed by scientists over their indirect roles in technological horrors.

Books By Author Raphael Sassower
Compromising the Ideals of Science, Hardback (March 2015)
This books examines the conditions under which scientists compromised the ideals of science, and elucidates these with reference to the challenges of profit motives and national security concerns. The book also offers suggestions for changing the political and economic conditions under which the integrity of science and its ethos can be practiced.
Price of Public Intellectuals, Hardback (April 2014)
This book provides a historically-informed survey critically outlining sociological, psychological, political, and economic approaches to the role of public intellectuals. Sassower suggests how the state might financially support the essential work of public intellectuals so as to critically engage the public and improve public policies.
Digital Exposure, Hardback (April 2013)» View all books by Raphael Sassower
This book adopts an explicitly postmodernist perspective of the digital revolution. While exploring issues relating to the re-creation of social life in the digital world, its main focus is on the political economy and in particular the extent to which the paradigms of capitalism and socialism can be mapped as postcapitalism onto this new world.
