Ciencia, Tecnología y Sociedad [SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & SOCIETY] A series edited by Pablo Kreimer This book series aims at contributing to develop a new field for social studies on science and technology in Latin America, covering different issues, theories, approaches, and possibilities for new inquiries. This contribution is based on two strategies that complement each other: publishing theoretical and empirical work by Latin American authors, on the one hand; and translating relevant work by researchers from industrialized nations, on the other. This editorial project seeks to serve as a tool for introducing new ideas, as well as discussing processes associated with scientific and technological knowledge production, use, and management, both in the current context and in history. Therefore, each topic is approached from different perspectives in its multiple social, political, historical, cultural, ideological, economic, and ethical dimensions. Paperback | 15 x 20 cm
