ARTICLE TITLE: Talents and Admirers: the Boundary between Academic and Public Science
AUTHORS: Savelieva I.
ABSTRACT: The paper analyzes the contents and objectives of ‘public social science’, the relationship between scholarly and popular knowledge, conventions governing the representation of the scientific knowledge outside the academic context, and the transfer of scholarly knowledge from academic to media environment. Public science is treated as a specific type of judgment and practice, thus the analysis of ‘public science’ covers cognitive aspects as well as social ones.
