Workshop for the Next Generation of Science and Technology Policy Leaders - Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes (CSPO)

Workshop for the Next Generation of Science and Technology Policy Leaders - Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes (CSPO)

Call for proposals

Complex problems of science, technology, and society are conspicuously, perhaps uniquely, apparent in national politics today. Where is the community of science policy scholars who can span the terrains of intellectual inquiry and real-world practice to contribute to public deliberation and democratic decision making on these problems? The Workshop for the Next Generation of Science and Technology Policy Leaders aims to build a small community of particularly promising early career individuals who can participate effectively in science and technology policy (STP) activities, broadly construed, taking advantage of the current national attention given to STP issues and dilemmas.

Arizona State University - Tempe, Arizona
Submission Deadline: 25 October 2009
Workshop: 16-19 May 2010

How to think about science

How to think about science

Surfing the web we found the CBC | Radio One website with audio material about thinking of science from a social perspective.

If science is neither cookery, nor angelic virtuosity, then what is it? Modern societies have tended to take science for granted as a way of knowing, ordering and controlling the world. Everything was subject to science, but science itself largely escaped scrutiny. This situation has changed dramatically in recent years. Historians, sociologists, philosophers and sometimes scientists themselves have begun to ask fundamental questions about how the institution of science is structured and how it knows what it knows. David Cayley talks to some of the leading lights of this new field of study.
