About the Author

Matthias Gross is Senior Researcher in the Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology at Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research-UFZ.

Reviews

Gross' book is an excellent contribution to the analytical terrain of uncertainty in studies of science-society relations and will bode well for scholars interested in expanded societal membership in the production of knowledge.--Metascience--

[A]n excellent historiography of social science philosophies of learning.

--International Social Science Review--

What kinds of science will help us navigate the Anthropocene? Matthias Gross's book takes an important step toward answering that question.

--Science as Culture--

A nicely focused approach to joining theory and practice for shaping the environment for human use.

--Building Research & Information--

Offers an important postnormal model of a science that counters the absolute pronouncements and rhetoric of a traditional science that fears ignorance and surprise, but that at the same time preserves the best parts of the scientific enterprise...Highly recommended.
