    I argue that the issues of foodquality, in the most general sense includingpurity, safety, and ethics, can no longer beresolved through ``normal'' science andregulation. The reliance on reductionistscience as the basis for policy andimplementation has shown itself to beinadequate. I use several borderline examplesbetween drugs and foods, particularly coffeeand sucrose, to show that ``quality'' is now acomplex attribute. For in those cases thesubstance is either a pure drug, or a bad foodwith drug-like properties; both are marketed asif they were foods. (...)

    Science on the verge.Alice Benessia, Silvio Funtowicz, Andrea Saltelli, Mario Giampietro, Ângela Guimarães Pereira, Jerome R. Ravetz, Roger Strand & Jeroen P. Van der Sluijs (eds.) - 2016 - Tempe, AZ: Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes.
    A crisis looms over the scientific enterprise. Not a day passes without news of retractions, failed replications, fraudulent peer reviews, or misinformed science-based policies. The social implications are enormous, yet this crisis has remained largely uncharted-until now. In Science on the Verge, luminaries in the field of post-normal science and scientific governance focus attention on worrying fault-lines in the use of science for policymaking, and the dramatic crisis within science itself. This provocative new volume in The Rightful Place of Science (...)

    Joseph Fourier, 1768-1830: A Survey of His Life and Work.Ivor Grattan-Guiness & Jerome R. Ravetz - 2003 - MIT Press.
    Beyond being the first substantial publication on Fourier, this work contains the text of Fourier's seminal paper of 1807 on the propagation of heat, marking the first time it has ever appeared in print. This paper incorporates many of the mathematical creations on which Fourier's fame rests, including derivation of the diffusion equation, the separation of the treatment of surface phenomena from internal phenomena, the use of boundary values and initial conditions, and the development of "Fourier series" and the so-called (...)

    Établir la qualité des preuves pour les situations de décision complexes et controversées.Jeroen P. Van der Sluijs, Arthur C. Petersen, Peter H. M. Janssen, James S. Risbey & Jerome R. Ravetz - 2012 - Hermès: La Revue Cognition, communication, politique 64 (3):, [ p.].
    Les décisions politiques sur les risques environnementaux complexes font fréquemment intervenir des éléments scientifiques contestés. Il n’y a généralement pas de « faits » qui conduisent à une politique correcte unique. Les éléments de preuve qui sont intégrés dans les avis scientifiques destinés à une décision politique nécessitent une évaluation de leur qualité. En 2003, l’Agence néerlandaise d’évaluation environnementale a adopté une méthode standardisée, désignée sous le nom de « guide », dans le cadre de laquelle les principaux aspects de (...)

    An hungarian tragedy.Jerome R. Ravetz - 2004 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 47 (4):413 – 422.
    In spite of being a very public intellectual, the philosopher Imre Lakatos (who died in 1974) was little understood. His Hungarian background seemed irrelevant to his career at the London School of Economics as the colleague and then successor to Sir Karl Popper. In Imre Lakatos and The Guises of Reason, John Kadvany demonstrates the overwhelming importance of Lakatos's Hungarian background, and thereby also explains and illuminates Lakatos's philosophy. His study also demonstrates the power of Hegel's thought as the background (...)
