Abstract:

Mid‐Twentieth Century declarations characterizing science as a ‘Little democracy' and as autonomous from society continue to shape the arguments of scientists' and critics of science studies, including Meera Nanda's arguments. Yet such an image of science has long lost whatever empirical support it ever posessed. This article shares Nanda's concern to envision sciences which support social justice projects, but not the particular criticisms she makes of Feminist, post‐colonial, and post‐kuhnian science studies.
