Science & Technology: A Basic Bibliography


By Patrick S. O’Donnell

Department of Philosophy

Santa Barbara City College (2009)


The categories employed are subject to the limitations if not liabilities inherent in all such categorization. And yet they should prove clear enough to delineate distinct territories within the study of science and technology worthy of disciplinary acquaintance and focused attention. Under “Philosophy of Science” I have left out the more specialized and highly technical studies, references to which will be found in several of the books that are included. And there may be a few titles not written by philosophers of science, indeed, they may not be works of “philosophy of science” in the traditional or conventional sense but were included because of their important implications for what is philosophy of science, in other words, philosophers of science would be remiss should they ignore them (e.g., Horwitz’s Creating Mental Illness [2002], or some of the titles by Steve Fuller), although I would like to think that philosophers of science are well-versed generally in the literature that falls within the remaining categories. This compilation is far from exhaustive, conspicuously so for that matter, and especially the section on “science, history of science and science studies,” as that is confined to studies representative or illustrative of the respective disciplinary domains and otherwise exemplary works. Nonetheless, the titles gathered within all the rubrics should signal something of the breadth and depth of these fields of inquiry. I welcome suggestions for additional titles.
