Additional Information: This book chapter brings together much of Prof Stirlings major but previously scattered works dealing with `incertitude and precaution. It examines the instrumentalities of the social science and in doing so finds, among other results, that bolt-on afterthoughts are inadequate for handling incertitude. A pluralistic response is strongly advocated.
