About the Project

Project term: April, 2012–March, 2015

No anthropologist denies the present-day importance of science; however, those who discuss science have seldom been willing to avail themselves of the significant achievements of anthropological research on ways of thought. In this project, anthropologists with expertise in research on science and technology will work with leading researchers in philosophy and natural science to bring attention to specific cases for in-depth discussion, and explore the modes of articulation of contemporary science as it applies to the lives of people in local communities in terms of ways of thought and practice.
