Experts in Science and Society Hardback
Edited by Elke Kurz-Milcke, Gerd Gigerenzer
Taking the viewpoint that experts are consulted when there is something important at stake for an individual, a group, or society at large, this volume explores expertise as a relational concept.
In order to be culturally comparative, this volume includes examples and discussions of experts in different countries and even in different time periods.
The topics include the roles of political experts, scientific experts, medical experts, and legal experts.
