This text examines how two powerful American institutions interact with each other. Sheila Jasanoff argues that the courts do not simply depend on scientific findings for guidance, but they actually influence the production of science and technology.

While exploring how science and the law interact both to produce knowledge and to resolve conflict, she reveals the gulf between objective science and adversarial law in the United States. This book aims to be of use to anyone who hopes to understand the changing configurations of science, technology, and the law.

Subjects:
Other Jurisdictions , USA
Contents:
The intersections of science and law; changing knowledge, changing rules; the law's construction of expertise; the technical discourse of government; law in the republic of science; toxic torts and the politics of causation; legal encounters with genetic engineering; family affairs; definitions of life and death; toward a more reflective alliance.
