Unhastening Science: Autonomy and Reflexivity in the Social theory of Knowledge (Studies in Social and Political Thought) (Volume 7) (Editura: Liverpool University Press/Books Outlet, Autor: Dick Pels ISBN 9780853236382 )
This book offers a new account of what makes science special among other human pursuits, critically engaging with a variety of approaches, especially constructivist and relativist studies of science and technology. It focuses on the studied "lack of haste" of science, its relative freedom from stress and its socially sanctioned withdrawal from the swift pace of ordinary life. Unhastening Science offers a balanced and thoughtful argument which emphasizes the dangers of cosseting science from the "scourge" of internal competition while at the same time highlighting the need for "distance" between the process of scientific thought and the faster machinery of politics, business, sports, and the media.
