The Social Sciences Go to Washington: The Politics of Knowledge in the Postmodern Age (Paperback)Hamilton Cravens (editor)
- We can order this
Policymakers have been troubled that followers of postmodernism have questioned the legitimacy of scientific and political authority to speak for the desires of social groups. As the social sciences increasingly become expressions of individual preferences, the contributors ask, how can they continue to be used to set public policy for us all?
This collection is a useful resource for anyone studying the relationship between science and the government in the postwar years.
