This is class instructions, please answer by following them: This class is organized around two themes: The first is an introductory section about the history of science studies and sociological approaches to the development of science. Questions addressed in this section revolve around what science is, the way that science changes over time, and whether and to what degree scientific knowledge can be separated from or held above lay understandings of phenomena. The second theme of the course moves beyond the development of science to look at the work of professional and scientific “experts” as they produce and reify professional and scientific claims to knowledge. This theme allows us to engage with some of the most exciting and intellectually challenging work in the sociology of science. By the end of this course, you should be able to think critically about the way science is produced, what various methods of science attempt to understand or change about the world, as well how expertise and the work of experts contributes to the development of scientific knowledge.
These are class readings you must read and please summarized them into a coherent narrative which shows you did the readings and can see connections between them.
