The Philosophy of Science and Technology Studies, Paperback / softback Book

The Philosophy of Science and Technology Studies Paperback / softback

Description

As the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) has become more established, it has increasingly hidden its philosophical roots.

While the trend is typical of disciplines striving for maturity, Steve Fuller, a leading figure in the field, argues that STS has much to lose if it abandons philosophy. In his characteristically provocative style, he offers the first sustained treatment of the philosophical foundations of STS and suggests fruitful avenues for further research.

With stimulating discussions of the Science Wars, the Intelligent Design Theory controversy, and theorists such as Donna Haraway and Bruno Latour, Philosophy of Science and Technology Studies is required reading for students and scholars in STS and the philosophy of science.
