15 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acting in an uncertain world : an essay on technical democracy by Michel Callon( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Controversies over such issues as nuclear waste, genetically modified organisms, asbestos, tobacco, gene therapy, avian flu, and cell phone towers arise almost daily as rapid scientific and technological advances create uncertainty and bring about unforeseen concerns. The authors of Acting in an Uncertain World argue that political institutions must be expanded and improved to manage these controversies, to transform them into productive conversations, and to bring about "technical democracy." They show how "hybrid forums"--In which experts, non-experts, ordinary citizens, and politicians come together - reveal the limits of traditional delegative democracies, in which decisions are made by quasi-professional politicians and techno-scientific information is the domain of specialists in laboratories. The division between professionals and laypeople, the authors claim, is simply outmoded."--Jacket

14 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agir dans un monde incertain : essai sur la démocratie technique by Michel Callon( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in French and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Des déchets radioactifs aux ondes électromagnétiques en passant par les OGM, les inquiétudes et les controverses se multiplient qui mettent en cause le monopole des experts sur l'orientation des décisions politiques relatives aux questions technologiques. Loin de déplorer une crise de confiance, les auteurs de ce livre analysent les nouvelles relations entre savoir et pouvoir qui émergent de ces débats. Refusant les traditionnelles oppositions entre spécialistes et profanes, professionnels de la politique et citoyens ordinaires, ils tirent profit des expériences existantes pour tracer les contours d'une démocratie technique et imaginer des dispositifs de décision capables de répondre à ces nouveaux défis."

12 editions published between 1982 and 1991 in French and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrairement à la littérature épistémologique qui ignore tout du fonctionnement technique et social des sciences, et contrairement à la littérature sociologique qui fait généralement l'impasse sur les contenus scientifiques, de nombreuse études existent en anglais qui proposent une autre façon de parler des sciences. Elles mettent en scène des acteurs sociaux - scientifiques ou autres - qui costruisent à chaud des connaissences, dont certaines finissent par s'imposer
Évaluer et valoriser : une sociologie économique de la mesure( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in French and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les marchés ne peuvent faire abstraction de la matérialité du monde", écrit Michel Callon dans cet ouvrage. Les acteurs économiques s'efforcent donc sans relâche d'"expliquer les qualités marchandes, c'est-à-dire calculables en termes monétaires, d'un journal, d'un travailleur intermittent, d'un corps d'agneau, d'une cocotte-minute, d'une transmission téléphonique ou du fonctionnement d'un hôpital", etc. Produit d'une longue réflexion collective du groupe Mesure, ce livre dirigé par François Vatin s'attache à étudier la genèse de la valeur économique dans ces dispositifs de mesure. Cherchant à penser l'économie en amont du marché, il offre une contribution originale au renouveau de la sociologie économique française. S'appuyant sur des exemples les plus divers, les auteurs soulignent combien les processus de mesure affectent la nature même des biens et des services offerts à la consommation. Ils éclairent ainsi d'une lumière originale l'économisation du monde à l'oeuvre dans nos sociétés contemporaines. Cet ouvrage, primitivement publié en 2009, a été augmenté de deux textes pour la présente édition : un chapitre nouveau fait le point sur le riche débat mené depuis cette date, en France comme à l'étranger, sur les questions d'évaluation économique et sociale ; un commentaire d'Alain Desrosières vient compléter celui de Michel Callon et introduit le regard d'un statisticien qui revisite son parcours scientifique à la lumière du questionnement du groupe Mesure. [4ème de couv.]

The radiance of France : nuclear power and national identity after World War II by Gabrielle Hecht( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of World War II, as France sought a distinctive role for itself in the modern, postcolonial world, the nation and its leaders enthusiastically embraced large technological projects in general and nuclear power in particular. The Radiance of France asks how it happened that technological prowess and national glory (or "radiance," which also means "radiation" in French) became synonymous in France as nowhere else. To answer this question, Gabrielle Hecht has forged an innovative combination of technology studies and cultural and political history in a book that, as Michel Callon writes in the new foreword to this edition, "not only sheds new light on the role of technology in the construction of national identities" but is also "a seminal contribution to the history of contemporary France." Proposing the concept of technopolitical regime as a way to analyze the social, political, cultural, and technological dynamics among engineering elites, unionized workers, and rural communities Hecht shows how the history of France's first generation of nuclear reactors is also a history of the multiple meanings of nationalism, from the postwar period (and France's desire for post-Vichy redemption) to 1969 and the adoption of a "Frenchified" American design
