Summary
"Beginning in the early twentieth century, a series of subdisciplines emerged with the shared objective of explaining and studying the nature, structures, and functions of science and technology. Philosophy, history, and sociology of science stood out in this development, and by the mid-1960s they began to converge. Today, there are numerous departments of science and technology studies granting bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in this burgeoning and exciting field." "Science, Technology, and Society: An Encyclopedia is a reference for anyone in the STS disciplines. The encyclopedia not only examines the rise of scientific and technical knowledge such as computers, bioengineering, and physics, but also explores the relationships between institutions in articles that address law, government, military, economics, media, religion, and more. Written by top international scholars and interdisciplinary researchers, these comparative essays provide the latest scholarship covering the global STS field."--Jacket
