it has been dramatically reshaped by a new understanding of science itself

In the last few years, scientific knowledge has come to be seen as a product of human culture, an approach that has challenged the tradition of the history of science as a story of steady and autonomous progress.

About three lines into his book Making Natural Knowledge, Jan Golinski defines the constructivist view of science as that which regards scientific knowledge primarily as a human product, made with locally situated cultural and material resources, rather than as simply the revelation o.

Arguably the best available introduction to constructivism, a research paradigm that has dominated the history of science for the past forty years, Making Natural Knowledge reflects on the importance of this theory, tells the history of its rise to prominence, and traces its most important tensions.
