Abstract

The tradition of Polish Science Studies dates back to the works of L. Fleck and F. Znaniecki. In the 1990s, the field found itself in crisis due to the many institutional transformations in the former Eastern Bloc. The subsequent resurgence started with the new millennium thanks to scholars particularly interested in the Actor-Network Theory, which offered conceptual tools to combine philosophical questions with sociological interests, and seemed also a good way out of the pitfalls of postmodern discussions. This collection presents a sample of renewed Science and Technology Studies in Poland ranging from theoretical explorations through discourse analysis-oriented chapters on anorexia and climate change disinformation, to studies of socio-scientific controversies over air pollution.
