From Our Editors

Scientists and academics debate the nature of science and knowledge in this collection of essays. The University of Toronto’s Ian Hacking and Western’s Alison Wylie are among those discussing contemporary connections between history, sociology, gender studies, anthropology, cultural studies and the sciences. Examining thought across time, culture and gender lines, The Science Studies Reader includes articles on moral economies of scientific communities, imaging and communication techniques, the gender dimensions of science and the future of science and research.

Editorial Reviews

It is easy to predict a bright future for the collection as assigned reading for seminars in interdisciplinary science studies, and indeed I have already put it to use successfully in just that way."-Jan Golinsky, "Isis "Collecting the founding articles of science studies all in one place, for the first time..."The Science Studies Reader is essential reading for anyone interested in science and technolgy. There is simply nothing else like it.."-Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, June 2001
