  3. Maya J. Goldenberg (forthcoming). Public Misunderstanding of Science? Reframing the Problem of Vaccine Hesitancy. Perspectives on Science:552-581.
    Public resistance towards scientific claims regarding vaccine safety is widely thought to stem from public misunderstanding (or ignorance) of science. Repeated failures to alleviate this ignorance make the problem of vaccine hesitancy seem intractable. I challenge this presumption of knowledge deficit and reinterpret vaccine hesitancy to be a problem of public mistrust of scientific experts and institutions. This finding invites new corrective measures: self-scrutiny by our scientific and governmental bodies regarding their own credibility as well as investment in dialogical rather (...)

    Alexandre Guay (forthcoming). The Uses of Analogies in 17th and 18th Century Science. Perspectives on Science.
    The object of this paper is to look at the extent and nature of the uses of analogy during the ªrst century following the so-called scientiªc revolution. Using the research tool provided by JSTOR we systematically analyze the uses of “analog” and its cognates (analogies, analogous, etc.) in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London for the period 1665–1780. In addition to giving the possibility of evaluating quantitatively the proportion of papers explicitly using analogies, this approach makes it (...)

    Mark Thomas Young (forthcoming). Technology and Technique: The Role of Skill in the Practice of Scientific Observation. Perspectives on Science:396-415.
    It has long been common to conceive of observation mechanically—as a process of data registration that is marginal and automatic. This paper explores the ways in which this idea has been facilitated by conceptions of instrumental technology as hindering individual variation in the practice of scientific observation. Understanding instruments in this way parallels attitudes towards technology in industrial manufacturing, where individual skill and technique have also been considered sources of uncertainty to be extinguished by mechanization, and if possible, (...)
