Item description for The Public Nature of Science under Assault: Politics, Markets, Science and the Law by Helga Nowotny...

Science has development from a self-evident public good to being highly valued in other contexts for different reasons: strengthening the economic competitiveness and, especially in high-tech fields, as a financial investment for future gains. This has been accompanied by a shift from public to private funding with intellectual property rights gaining importance. But in contemporary democracies citizens have also begun to voice their concerns about science and technology related risks, demanding greater participation in decision-making and in the setting of research priorities. The book examines the legal issues and responses vis--vis these transformations of the nature of public science. It discusses their normative content as well as the inherent limitations of the law in meeting these challenges.
