The importance of post-modern science policy
The reference to ‘post-modern’ will be used loosely, to draw attention to two limitations of regular science policy (including technoscience policy): its neglect of the actual complexities of knowledge production (a richer concept than science), and its falling victim to the modernist illusion of agency (even if this illusion can be productive sometimes). I will develop and illustrate these points in more detail, and explore possibilities (and instances) of post-modern science policy.
