Who Rules in Science? by James Robert Brown

Book Description

In Who Rules in Science? James Brown takes us through the various engagements in the science wars - from the infamous "Sokal affair" to angry confrontations over the nature of evidence, the possibility of objectivity, and the methods of science - to show how the contested terrain may be science, but the prize is political: Whoever wins the science wars will have an unprecedented influence on how we are governed.
