Description - The Science Studies Reader by Mario Biagioli

The Science Studies Reader is a landmark anthology of writings in the new field of science studies. Society and the scientific community are today becoming ever increasingly involved with the question as to what actually comprises "scientific knowledge". This collection of writings by some of the most prominent thinkers in the field speaks to the nature of science and knowledge across time, cultures, and genders. The Reader pulls together the foundational essays in Science Studies by the field's key scholars, whilst Mario Biagioli provides an accessible introduction to a collection which is ideally suited for classroom use. The collection covers the cultural study of science, feminism and science, the relation of technology to society and humans, the history of science and modernity, as well as other key themes. Contributors: Karen Barad, Mario Biagioli, Pierre Bourdieu, Robert M. Brian, Michael Callon, Sande Cohen, H.M. Collins, Lorraine Daston, Arnold Davidson, Peter Galison, James R. Griesemer, Ian Hacking
