Steve Fuller has a reputation for setting the terms of debate
within science and technology studies. In his latest book, New
Frontiers in Science and Technology Studies he charts the debates
likely to be of relevance in the coming years.
*Should science and technology be treated as separate
entities?*What impact has globalization had on science and
technology? *Can science be clearly distinguished from other forms
of knowledge? *Does the politicization of science really matter?
*Is there a role for the social regulation of scientific inquiry?
*Should we be worried about research fraud?
These questions are explored by examining an array of historical,
philosophical and contemporary sources. Attention is paid, for
example, to the Bruno Latour's The Politics of Nature as a model
for science policy, as well as the global controversy surrounding
Bjorn Lomborg's The Sceptical Environmentalist, which led to the
dismantling and re-establishment of the Danish national research
New Frontiers in Science and Technology Studies will appeal
strongly to scholars and advanced undergraduate and graduate
students in courses concerned with the social dimensions of science
and technology, and anyone who cares about the future of science.
