The Unmaking of American Science Policy: The End of the Scientific Era?
Park, Robert L.; Goodenough, Ursula
Academe, v82 n1 p12-15 Jan-Feb 1996
This article suggests that the American public is experiencing growing alienation from scientific inquiry and there is no national science policy. The research capacity of the United States is declining, and scientists have been reluctant to speak out. Concern exists that open disagreement among scientists would be more damaging than helpful. However, such silence is dangerous to scientific pursuit. (MSE)
