“Unresolved Controversies”

8746d72c9e8103335ddd98cd0dc322a3

I need your help: anybody know a few research papers or a book specifically about unresolved controversies? It would be terrific if there was some conceptualization, or even a functional analysis of the manifest and latent consequences of unresolved controversies. In fact, it would be amazing to see research on “intentionally unresolved controversies.”

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.

  1. FROM FB: Nicole Nelson Jordan and Lynch’s article on the plasmid prep? That one specifically critiques the idea of closure and shows that even supposedly stabilized techniques still generate controversy. Or maybe Alice Street’s SSS article on artefacts of not knowing, where she talks about how uncertainty is not always erased in medical settings?
