About Nicholas

Associate Professor of Sociology, Environmental Studies, and Science and Technology Studies at Penn State, Nicholas mainly writes about understanding the scientific study of states and, thus, it is namely about state theory. Given his training in sociology and STS, he takes a decidedly STS-oriented approach to state theory and issues of governance.

    • I wish it was more of an engagement with the public than writing for the public but as an admirer of Dewey I appreciate the attempt to rethink contemporary academic philosophy in terms of more pressing public interests. I disagree with Chris Long that merely studying philosophy (as it is now practiced) will provide the kinds of cultivated/reflexive habits make one a better, more mature, person/citizen but I do think that there are calls to (even prototypes for )such maturation/individuation in works like that of the later Foucault and recently folks like Paul Rabinow, Latour, Stengers, Stiegler, and the post-wittgenstein enactivists.
      have you read any of Donald Schon’s work on developing reflective practitioners? What if we took Dewey’s idea of school as lab (or say design studio) to higher-ed and turned the whole university (dorms, cafeteria, student govts, power plants, etc) into experimental learning projects?
