A Tapestry of Values

An Introduction to Values in Science

Kevin C. Elliott

  • Relevant for courses in many different subject areas: history, philosophy, and sociology of science; science and technology studies; science policy; research ethics; and environmental studies
  • Examines case studies from many different areas of research, including climate science, anthropology, chemical risk assessment, ecology, neurobiology, biomedical research, and agriculture
  • Highlights multiple strategies for fostering engagement between stakeholders so that value influences can be identified and subjected to critical scrutiny
