Summary

The Union of Scientifically Enlightened Citizens

The article investigates the possible outcomes of assuming that there is no “scientific knowledge” – the self-contained univocal faculty derivable from the natural world order by scientific institutions and therefore immune to external nonscientific (political, economic, ethical, or societal) influences. If speculative attempts to establish and/or (re)construct scientific knowledge are counter-productive, we must consider replacing “scientific knowledge” with a sort of posthumanist scientific erudition. Therefore, the author suggests that scientific activity should be pursued, not by collecting novel methodological and disciplinary capacities, but by “rebooting” the “inquiry mode”: a practical flexibility to mediate socio-political issues, the techno-digital sphere and biological (in a broad sense) makeup.

 

Key Words: scientific knowledge, posthumanism, F. Nietzsche, EU science policy, scientific values
