Review 'This volume's strength lies in its multiple understandings of scientific objects and practices. ... It is still, a decade after publication, relevant to continuing concerns, reflecting the continuing lack of agreement in epistemology, but approaches that nonetheless, articulate new knowledge.' The Journal of Biosocial Science Book Description This stimulating collection of essays, a product of face-to-face dialogues among anthropologists, sociologists, and philosopher-historians, focuses on the newly created biomedical technologies and their application in practice. Drawing on ethnographic and historical case studies, the authors show how biomedical technologies are produced through the agencies of tools and techniques, scientists and doctors, funding bodies, patients, clients, and the public. Despite shared concerns, the contributions reveal that the authors have achieved no consensus about the objectives of their research. Deep epistemological divides clearly remain, making for provocative reading.
