US, Canadian, and Australian science educators argue that the cultural studies of science is not anti-science. They examine the work of selected French thinkers, present a vision of what a postmodern science education can and might look like, and begin to develop a pedagogy that informs students about the inner workings and deep impacts of the sciences on the cultures of the world. Some of the 11 essays have titles with(out) parentheses in them. There is no subject index.

    This isn't a review. Just a comment: There are three authors of this book; I am also an author: Peter Appelbaum consider also listing it under the common misspelling of my name, applebaum
