9780080257785: The Manufacture of Knowledge: Essay on the Constructivist and Contextual Nature of Science

This study is a realist enterprise, an attempt to truly represent the social order of life in laboratories and institutes of research, just as they are. By bringing the philosophical issues to the surface as matters not of prejudgement but as matters of concerns, Karin Knorr-Cetina has developed the first really positive challenge to the philosophy of science since the days of paradigms and internal definitions of meanings. The anthropological approach is the central focus of this study.
