Kuhn vs. Popper : the struggle for the soul of science by Steve Fuller( Book )

34 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions has sold over a million copies in more than twenty languages and has remained one of the ten most cited academic works for the past half century. In contrast, Karl Popper's seminal book The Logic of Scientific Discovery has lapsed into relative obscurity. Although the two men debated the nature of science only once, the legacy of this encounter has dominated intellectual and public discussions on the topic over since." "Almost universally recognized as the modern watershed in the philosophy of science, Kuhn's relativistic vision of shifting paradigms - which asserted that science was just another human activity, like art or philosophy, only more specialized - triumphed over Popper's more positivistic belief in science's revolutionary potential to falsify society's dogmas. But has this victory been beneficial for science? Steve Fuller argues that not only has Kuhn's dominance had an adverse impact on the field but both thinkers have been radically misinterpreted in the process."--Jacket
Science by Steve Fuller( Book )

33 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition, Fuller highlights science's multicultural nature through a discussion of episodes in which the West's own understanding of science has been decisively affected by its encounters with Islam and Japan. An important theme of the book is that science's most attractive feature - its openness to criticism - is threatened by the role it increasingly plays in the maintenance of social and economic order
Philosophy of science and its discontents by Steve Fuller( Book )

15 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fuller argues that philosophers of science need to take more seriously the psychological and sociological constraints on human rationality that make the production of knowledge an unavoidably imperfect enterprise. Includes a "map of the field" and question-and-answer discussion of the author's premise. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland
The governance of science : ideology and the future of the open society by Steve Fuller( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ground-breaking text offers a fresh perspective on the governance of science from the standpoint of social and political theory. Science has often been seen as the only institution that embodies the elusive democratic ideal of the 'open society'. Yet, science remains an elite activity that commands much more public trust than understanding, even though science has become increasingly entangled with larger political and economic issues. Fuller proceeds by rejecting liberal and communitarian ideologies of science, in favour of a 'republican' approach centred on 'the right to be wrong'. He shows how the recent sealing up of scientific activity has undermined the republican ideal." "The centerpiece of the book, a social history of the struggle to render the university a 'republic of science', focuses on the potential challenges posed by multiculturalism and capitalism. Finally, drawing on the science policy of the US New Deal, Fuller proposes nothing short of a new social contract for 'secularizing' science."--Jacket

Science vs. religion? : intelligent design and the problem of evolution by Steve Fuller( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, science and religion have been portrayed as diametrically opposed. In this provocative new book, Steve Fuller examines the apparent clash between science and religion by focusing on the heated debates about evolution and intelligent design theory. In so doing, he claims that science vs. religion is in fact a false dichotomy. For Fuller, supposedly intellectual disputes, such as those between creationist and evolutionist accounts of life, often disguise other institutionally driven conflicts, such as the struggle between State and Church to be the source of legitimate authority i
The Cognitive turn : sociological and psychological perspectives on science by Steve Fuller( Book )

12 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If nothing else, the twelve papers assembled in this volume should lay to rest the idea that the interesting debates about the nature of science are still being conducted by "internalists" vs. "externalists, "" rationalists" vs. "arationalists, n or even "normative epistemologists" vs. "empirical sociologists of knowledge." Although these distinctions continue to haunt much of the theoretical discussion in philosophy and sociology of science, our authors have managed to elude their strictures by finally getting beyond the post-positivist preoccupation of defending a certain division of labor among the science studies disciplines. But this is hardly to claim that our historians, philosophers, sociologists, and psychologists have brought about an "end of ideology," or even an "era of good feelings," to their debates. Rather, they have drawn new lines of battle which center more squarely than ever on practical matters of evaluating and selecting methods for studying science. To get a vivid sense of the new terrain that was staked out at the Yearbook conference, let us start by meditating on a picture. The front cover of a recent collection of sociological studies edited by one of us (Woolgar 1988) bears a stylized picture of a series of lined up open books presented in a typical perspective fashion. The global shape comes close to a trapezium, and is composed of smaller trapeziums gradually decreasing in size and piled upon each other so as to suggest a line receding in depth. The perspective is stylized too

Humanity 2.0 : what it means to be human past, present and future by Steve Fuller( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social thinkers in all fields are faced with one unavoidable question: what does it mean to be 'human' in the 21st century? As definitions between what is 'animal' and what is 'human' break down, and asemerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and nano- and bio- technologies develop, accepted notions of humanity are rapidly evolving. Humanity 2.0is an ambitious and groundbreaking book,offering a sweeping overview of key historical, philosophical and theological moments that have shaped our understandings of humanity. Tackling head on the twin taboos that have always hovered over the scientific study of humanity - race and religion - Steve Fuller argues thar far from disappearing, they are being reinvented. Fuller argues thatthese new developmentswill force us to decide which features of our current way of life - not least our bodies - are truly needed to remain human, and concludes with a consideration of these changes for ethical and social values more broadly
New frontiers in science and technology by Steve Fuller( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should science and technology be treated as separate entities? What impact has globalization had on science and technology? Can science be clearly distinguished from other forms of knowledge? Does the politicization of science really matter? Is there a role for the social regulation of scientific inquiry? Should we be worried about research fraud? These questions are explored by examining an array of historical, philosophical and contemporary sources. Attention is paid, for example, to the Bruno Latour's The Politics of Nature as a model for science policy, as well as the global controversy surrounding Bjorn Lomborg's The Sceptical Environmentalist, which led to the dismantling and re-establishment of the Danish national research ethics board."--Jacket
The sociology of intellectual life : the career of the mind in and around the academy by Steve Fuller( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sociology of Intellectual Life outlines a social theory of knowledge for the 21st century. Steve Fuller deals directly with a world in which it is no longer taken for granted that universities and academics are the best places and people to embody the life of the mind. While Fuller defends academic privilege, he takes very seriously the historic divergences between academics and intellectuals, attending especially to the different features of knowledge production that they value."
The intellectual by Steve Fuller( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Japanese and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chomsky, Dawkins, Germaine Greer, Martin Amis ... with their regular TV appearances, newspaper columns and soundbites in times of crisis, intellectuals are indispensable characters in the drama of modern life. But what makes them tick? Modelled on Machiavelli's notorious tract on statecraft, The Prince, Steve Fuller's book dissects what it means to be an intellectual. What distinguishes them from philosophers, scientists, politicians or entrepreneurs? Why are they happy to be insulted as long as they are not ignored? And who is the intellectual's favourite superhero? As well as a history o

Preparing for life in humanity 2.0 by Steve Fuller( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preparing for Life in Humanity 2.0 is a follow-up to Fuller's widely discussed Humanity 2.0. It provides a more detailed analysis of several quite divergent futures for 'being human' in the 21st century. The book begins by discussing the philosophical foundations of Humanity 2.0, drawing attention to how recent changes in the conduct of science and its social relations reflect implicit changes in human self-understanding. Here three possible futures of 'being human' are sketched and ideologically interrelated: the ecological, the biomedical and the cybernetic. Then the book moves to Humanity 2.0's emerging political economy, which involves the redefinition of classical political and economic concepts, such as justice and productivity. Next the book turns to Humanity 2.0's 'anthropology', which means the living conditions and aspirations available to this new being. Then Humanity 2.0's ethical horizons are considered, focusing on the normative sensibility of the 'moral entrepreneur', a natural risk-taker whose blurring of traditional intuitions of 'good' and 'evil' may acquire greater significance and legitimacy in the future. Finally the book concludes with a revised general education curriculum for Humanity 2.0 that gives centre stage to changing attitudes to the brain."--Publisher's website
