Über dieses Buch

This book investigates how collaborative scientific practice yields scientific knowledge. At a time when most of today’s scientific knowledge is created in research groups, the author reconsiders the social character of science to address the question of whether collaboratively created knowledge should be considered as collective achievement, and if so, in which sense. Combining philosophical analysis with qualitative empirical inquiry, this book provides a comparative case study of mono- and interdisciplinary research groups, offering insight into the day-to-day practice of scientists. The book includes field observations and interviews with scientists to present an empirically-grounded perspective on much-debated questions concerning research groups’ division of labor, relations of epistemic dependence and trust.

She received her PhD from Aarhus University, Denmark, in 2014.

Nersessian the volume Empirical Philosophy of Science (Springer, 2015).

Stimmen zum Buch

“Susann Wagenknecht has written an important book that uses empirical methods for testing and refining philosophical theories about the nature and collaborative creation of scientific knowledge. …I believe this is the first book that makes a serious attempt to study these philosophical topics with an empirical methodology. The book delivers important insights and is recommended reading for both philosophers and social scientists interested in epistemic collaboration and creation of scientific knowledge.” (Raul Hakli, Metascience, July, 2018)
