Cultural Studies of Science and Technology
This page is devoted to the cultural studies of science and
technology, i.e. the understanding of the mutual relations between
culture and science and technology. This is a tremendously
interesting area but not without its controversies, owing to the
vastly differing worldviews various interested parties bring to the
table (cf. the Science Wars). My personal feeling is that an
understanding of the relation between culture and science can be
helpful to both scientists and humanists and highly rewarding to those
who have the courage to venture into this sometimes caustic and
generally stimulating area.
If this page is of interest to you, you may also enjoy my page on high-tech postmodernism.
