The Case Against Science

The central topic of this paper is thirteen complaints or grievances formed in countercultural environments and directed against science. Most of them are formulated in a way that suggests a general disapproval of the scientific enterprise. My main conclusion will be that they are on the whole well-founded insofar as they oppose dominant trends of science in the industrial states (including certain eastern European ones), but on less firm ground when they take issue with science in general.
