Technicity vs Scientificity : Complementarities and Rivalries, Hardback Book

Technicity vs Scientificity : Complementarities and Rivalries Hardback



The relationship between technicity and scientificity is often overlooked or avoided despite being a determining factor for establishing interdisciplinarity.

By focusing on this relationship and highlighting a number of its ramifications, this book sheds light on the hidden or skewed stakes that condition a wide array of scientific projects. The authors present different approaches based on their own professional experience, focusing on the technique-science relationship in domains as diverse as brain mapping, the decipherment of Mycenaean writing and the design process.

Each chapter presents varying and often opposing epistemological conclusions to provide the reader with a wide breadth of examples in different fields. Although the scope of this book is far from exhaustive, it serves as a starting point for the necessary and long-overdue clarification of the relationship between these neighboring, yet disjointed, sectors.
