Summary

Gernot Böhme, a distinguished and original contributor to critical theory's philosophy of science project, sets out the main theses of this program in an important volume for science studies scholars. Stressing that science is a necessary aspect of advanced societies, Böhme explores the most fundamental questions about its social, political, and cultural roles in modern society. In light of the mixed blessings of technical society, Böhme questions whether we can continue to regard the institution of science as the top of a hierarchy of knowledge or as a neutral means of progress, let alone as a benign force for good. Science and its future are too important to be left to the scientists; society, Böhme insists, must take control of its scientific future.
