Social epistemology: communicating neuroscience


Abstract
Addiction neuroethics has emerged as a field that underscores the public orientation of addiction neuroscience. The goal of this chapter is to suggest a social epistemology of neuroscience, with special attention to the communication of addiction neuroscience. It aims to set social epistemology in a complementary relation to neuroethics, as part of this important interdisciplinary space, but one where issues of knowledge circulation and science communication are foregrounded. This focus demonstrates the difficulties of seeing science communication as an instrumental means to fulfilling a wide variety of epistemic ends. The chapter also examines the roles of communication optimism and pessimism in framing the communication work that needs to be achieved for a successful publicly oriented field of addiction neuroethics.
