A Note on the Post-Modern Sociology of Science. A Tribute to Scerri’s Tale of 7 Elements (pp. 245-250)
Authors: Mihai V. Putz
Abstract: The importance of Science in society is emphasized by the role of priorities and disputes on the “scientific truth,” eventually emerged by a plethora of human and knowledge inter-relations, socio-cultural events, and discoveries (including recognition) in what can be assigned as the post-modern sociology of science – the quintessence of the Eris Scerri’s Oxford’s book on A Tale of 7 Elements. The proposed method of decomposing scientific truths into its post-modern (i.e., on its network intensity of relationships) sociology may be considered as generally applicable to the current, and possible future forms of learning, towards activating and recognizing a scientific truth.
