  1. The Conceptual and the Empirical in Science and Technology Studies.David Ribes & Christopher Gad - 2014 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 39 (2):183-191.
    It is the purpose of this special issue to acknowledge the shifting definitions and uses of the conceptual and empirical in the field of Science and Technology Studies, and to explore the constructive potential of this condition. In this introductory essay we point to four formulations in STS for the relation between the conceptual and the empirical which do not figure them as binaries or opposites: the empirical as a path to the conceptual, the conceptual as practical and empirical, the (...)

  • Learning in a Landscape: Simulation-Building as Reflexive Intervention.Anne Beaulieu, Matt Ratto & Andrea Scharnhorst - 2013 - Mind and Society 12 (1):91-112.
    This article makes a dual contribution to scholarship in science and technology studies on simulation-building. It both documents a specific simulation-building project, and demonstrates a concrete contribution of STS insights to interdisciplinary work. The article analyses the struggles that arise in the course of determining what counts as theory, as model and even as a simulation. Such debates are especially decisive when working across disciplinary boundaries, and their resolution is an important part of the work involved in building simulations. In (...)

  • Continuous Variations: The Conceptual and the Empirical in STS.Casper Bruun Jensen - 2014 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 39 (2):192-213.
    The dichotomy between the conceptual and the empirical is part of common sense, yet its organizing force also extends to intellectual life more generally, including the disciplinary life of science and technology studies. This article problematizes this dichotomy as it operates in contemporary STS discussions, arguing instead that the conceptual and the empirical form unstable hybrids. Beginning with a discussion of the “discontents” with which the dominant theory methods packages in STS are viewed, it is suggested that STS has entered (...)

  • Science Policy and STS From Other Epistemic Places. [REVIEW]Tereza Stöckelová & Lisa Garforth - 2012 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 37 (2):226-240.
    Recently there have been pleas for STS to make a difference in how science policies are constructed and enacted. Much less remarked upon is the possibility that there may be troubling alignments between science studies and research policies in the form of shared conceptual, epistemological and methodological assumptions. Both have come to emphasise material outputs and visible activity, obscuring other processes, relationships and orderings involved in science work. This collection of papers focuses on these connections between STS and contemporary research (...)

  • Medicine, Technology, and Religion Reconsidered: The Case of Brain Death Definition in Israel.Hagai Boas, Shai Lavi & Sky Edith Gross - 2019 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 44 (2):186-208.
    The introduction of respiratory machines in the 1950s may have saved the lives of many, but it also challenged the notion of death itself. This development endowed “machines” with the power to form a unique ontological creature: a live body with a “dead” brain. While technology may be blamed for complicating things in the first place, it is also called on to solve the resulting quandaries. Indeed, it is not the birth of the “brain-dead” that concerns us most, but rather (...)
