Abstract

This book aims at bringing together essays on the interplay between science, technology and soci-ety (STS). The essays within the book span a diver-sity of topics, including educational programs, scientific communities, technological decision-making, legal regulation, the role of users and non-users in technological development, and genetic engineering and society. The book draws from a wide range of theoretical perspectives, including psychology, sociology, organisational studies and economics. Overall, it shows a stronger emphasis on technology than on science, although some chapters focus on science or on both, and the two cannot always be disentangled.
