"In light of the mixed blessings of technical society, Bohme 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, Bohme insists, must take control of its scientific future."--Jacket." ;
