Produktbeschreibung
Re-Thinking Science presents an account of the dynamicrelationship between society and science. Despite the mountingevidence of a much closer, interactive relationship between societyand science, current debate still seems to turn on the need tomaintain a 'line' to demarcate them. The view persists that thereis a one-way communication flow from science to society - withscant attention given to the ways in which society communicateswith science. The authors argue that changes in society now make suchcommunications both more likely and more numerous, and that this istransforming science not only in its research practices and theinstitutions that support it but also deep in its epistemologicalcore. To explain these changes, Nowotny, Scott and Gibbons havedeveloped an open, dynamic framework for re-thinking science. The authors conclude that the line which formerly demarcatedsociety from science is regularly transgressed and that theresulting closer interaction of science and society signals theemergence of a new kind of science: contextualized orcontext-sensitive science. The co-evolution between society andscience requires a more or less complete re-thinking of the basison which a new social contract between science and society might beconstructed. In their discussion the authors present some of theelements that would comprise this new social contract.

Rezensionen
'What you always wanted to know about the "knowledge society",Nowotny, Scott and Gibbons are telling it in Re-ThinkingScience, the sequel to their much acclaimed book The NewProduction of Knowledge (1994). This is a splendid book, fullof empirical insight and intellectual vision. Re-ThinkingScience is reliable and robust at the same time.' WolfLepenies, Rektor, Institute for Advanced Study, Berlin

'The authors take us beyond the dichotomies of science andsociety in their ovular new work, Re-Thinking Science, intoa new agora of interactive forces in which old institutionalboundaries of science, industry and government are transcended.Re-Thinking Science re-thinks society.' Henry Etzkowitz,Director, Science Policy Institute, State University of New York atPurchase

'This book goes far beyond The New Production ofKnowledge (1994), the earlier collection of essays by MichaelGibbons, Helga Nowotny and others. That book launched the debate onthe trend towards a new regime for the production of knowledge andthe practice of research ... Re-Thinking Science revisitsthese themes in the form of a single brilliant essay in socialtheory ... a splendid vision of a probable future world, in whichscience and society will increasingly overlap and be exposed to thegrowing expertise and contesting forces of the agora.'Nature

'This book is packed with novel and quite complicated ideas ...We look forward to a further harvest of sharp observations and deepinterpretations in the next product from this outstanding scholarlyteam.' Interdisciplinary Science Review

'an enourmously important book, which deserves to be widely readand discussed.' Science as Culture

The book could be influential in providing sustenance to highereducation managers as they struggle to find new definitions of whatit means to be a university. Political leaders too would do well tostudy it in order to move their policy-making away from dependenceon mode 1 ideas. The vision of the science of the future outlinedin the book could perhaps have gone further. However, there is abalance to be struck between being influential and being visionary.This book will clearly be influential. The vision will hopefullygrow." Studies in Higher Education
