Map of the Third Wave and SEE

The technical wing, or `SEE’ is the top darker area, with the politics and policy wing,
more correctly referred to as the Third Wave, is the lighter shaded lower section. The
map shows intellectual developments some of which are represented by publications,
some by drafts, some by research proposals and so on. The dotted circle represents, very
roughly, the domain of Science and Technology Studies with more general links outside
the circle.

With the upper section of the dotted circle can be seen the categories of the Periodic
Table leading to the Imitation Game and implications for ethnography and anthropology.
The lower half of the circle contains implication for science and politics, including a real-
time decision-making procedure for cases like AIDS in South Africa. This lower half
leads to the idea of `elective modernism’ as the underlying philosophy. On the boundary
between the two halves is the problem of demarcation and the Locus Legitimate
Interpretation is a new demarcation criterion.

Topics that fall mostly outside of the reach of STS in the lower half include political
philosophy in general and the argument against the politically attractive drift, in many
spheres, toward policies that replace expert advice with popular choice. In the upper half
there are implications for many disciplines including social theory. A more complete
explanation of the Map may be found on this website. It is in the final section of the
paper entitled ‘The Third Wave of Science Studies: Developments and Politics’ which
will be published in both Japanese and English. (Collins, Harry 2011 forthcoming. `The
Third Wave of Science Studies: Developments and Politics’ Japan Journal for Science,
Technology & Society, Vol. 20, 00, 000-000 [simultaneously published in Japanese,
SHISO, 00, 00, 000-000])
