Five Arguments for Increasing Public Participation in Making Science Policy
Article from Journal - ilmiah internasional
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society vol. 19 no. 2 (Apr. 1999)
In this article, the author, after describing the technocratic nature of the current science policy process, presents five arguments for changing it into a more participatory one. All five arguments draw on different sectors of the STS endeavor—both high and low church—to show why increased public involvement would benefit science. The first argues that the degree of potential harm from science-based technology demands greater accountability. The second draws on the adage that the buyer should have some say on the product. The third uses the social constructed nature of science. The fourth builds on feminist and marxist arguments. Finally, the last uses Kant to claim that all people matter. The author ends by providing a quick view describing the appearance of a more participatory process. The key is not the final process but the process of working together to reach it.
