KNORR CETINA EPISTEMIC CULTURES PDF

Table of Contents How does science create knowledge? Epistemic cultures, shaped by affinity, necessity, and historical coincidence, determine how we know what we know. In this book, Karin Knorr Cetina compares two of the most important and intriguing epistemic cultures of our day, those in high energy physics and molecular biology. Her work highlights the diversity of these cultures of knowing and, in its depiction of their differences—in the meaning of the empirical, the enactment of object relations, and the fashioning of social relations—challenges the accepted view of a unified science. By looking at epistemic cultures in two sample cases, this book addresses pressing questions about how such expert systems and processes work, what principles inform their cognitive and procedural orientations, and whether their organization, structures, and operations can be extended to other forms of social order.

Her dissertation research focused on the structural analysis of oral literature. She shifted her focus toward sociology as she found that cultural anthropology at the time was too focused on historical concerns, while she was more interested in contemporary social phenomena. This resulted in a Post-doctoral diploma in sociology, and an appointment as an instructor in anthropology at the University of Vienna from —73, and then in sociology from During this time, Knorr-Cetina engaged in her first empirical investigations of science leading the publication with Hermann Strasser and Hans Georg Zilian Determinants and Controls of Scientific Development.

Shortly before her arrival in California, the French philosopher-turned-sociologist Bruno Latour and British sociologist Steven Woolgar began their well known "laboratory studies" at the Salk Institute in southern California. The empirical research conducted while at Berkeley also became her widely cited publication The Manufacture of Knowledge: An Essay on the Constructivist and Contextual Nature of Science.

Knorr-Cetina also received her Habilitation in sociology at the University of Bielefeld in , and served as Professor of Sociology at Bielefeld from to Her work in the social studies of science during these years culminated in her widely-cited book Epistemic Cultures: How the Sciences Make Knowledge, published in The first suggestion of this new field site was in the article "Sociality with objects: Social relations in postsocial knowledge societies" , followed later by a conference on "The Status of the Object in Social Science" at Brunel University in September The paper she presented at this conference, entitled "The Market as an Object of Attachment: Exploring Postsocial Relations in Financial Markets", was later published in Her co-author was Urs Bruegger, a former foreign exchange dealer.

The two collaborated on over a dozen articles on global financial markets. Sociology of Global Financial Systems[ edit ] With the turn of the century, Knorr Cetina became interested in global financial markets as an object of study. From early work with Urs Bruegger, [1] [2] we see this developing into a strong research interest. Bloomberg terminals to see the microconstruction of the global market in the space of the local.

The financial market infrastructure also comprises a "global scopic system" that integrates news and information across the world. Although Goffman is widely published and read in these areas, much has changed since his day and Knorr Cetina conceptualized such changes. Examples include an online video chat, playing video games against others on the Internet or even a business deal done via videoconference. Knorr Cetina explains the difference of the two situations by the use of surgery.

A synthetic situation arises, however, when the surgeon uses technology like a scope and a screen in order to accomplish the task at hand. Without looking at the patient through the screen, the job would not be able to be done and would remain a face-to-face, social situation. Awards and recognition[ edit ].

Karin Knorr Cetina

Epistemic cultures, shaped by affinity, necessity, and historical coincidence, determine how we know what we know. In this book, Karin Knorr Cetina compares two of the most important and intriguing epistemic cultures of our day, those in high energy physics and molecular biology. Her work highlights the diversity of these cultures of knowing and, in its depiction of their differences--in the meaning of the empirical, the enactment of object relations, and the fashioning of social relations--challenges the accepted view of a unified science. By many accounts, contemporary Western societies are becoming "knowledge societies"--which run on expert processes and expert systems epitomized by science and structured into all areas of social life. By looking at epistemic cultures in two sample cases, this book addresses pressing questions about how such expert systems and processes work, what principles inform their cognitive and procedural orientations, and whether their organization, structures, and operations can be extended to other forms of social order. The first ethnographic study to systematically compare two different scientific laboratory cultures, this book sharpens our focus on epistemic cultures as the basis of the knowledge society.
