Product Details

Praise

Gross’ book is an excellent contribution to the analytical terrain of uncertainty in studies of science-society relations and will bode well for scholars interested in expanded societal membership in the production of knowledge.—Metascience

[A]n excellent historiography of social science philosophies of learning.

International Social Science Review

What kinds of science will help us navigate the Anthropocene? Matthias Gross’s book takes an important step toward answering that question.

Science as Culture

A nicely focused approach to joining theory and practice for shaping the environment for human use.

Building Research & Information

Offers an important postnormal model of a science that counters the absolute pronouncements and rhetoric of a traditional science that fears ignorance and surprise, but that at the same time preserves the best parts of the scientific enterprise…Highly recommended.
