The Science Studies Reader by Mario Biagioli

The Reader focuses on the practices of modern and contemporary science and technology located in different national and institutional settings, with some attention to non- Western contexts. By mapping some of the open questions and points of tension likely to occupy the field for years to come, the essays in the Readercast fresh light on what science means at the end of the twentieth century.


There is no comparable anthology in which so many [science studies classics] can be accessed so conveniently... 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
