Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Ignorance and Surprise provides the first comprehensive synthesis of thesociology of ignorance and the sociology of scientific knowledge. In addition to developing aframework for analyzing ignorance and knowledge together, Gross suggests a way of bringing the powerof the scientific experiment, which can both encourage and control surprise, into the world ofecological restoration and environmental policy. Given the often disheartening environmentalsurprises that contemporary society faces, this book is a thoughtful and timely intervention intoour thinking about the environment, resilience, and sustainability."--David Hess, author ofAlternative Pathways in Science and Industry.

Inhaltsangabe:

Ignorance and surprise belong together: surprises can make people aware of their own ignorance. And yet, perhaps paradoxically, a surprising event in scientific research -- one that defies prediction or risk assessment -- is often a window to new and unexpected knowledge. In this book, Matthias Gross examines the relationship between ignorance and surprise, proposing a conceptual framework for handling the unexpected and offering case studies of ecological design that demonstrate the advantages of allowing for surprises and including ignorance in the design and negotiation processes.

Gross draws on classical and contemporary sociological accounts of ignorance and surprise in science and ecology and integrates these with the idea of experiment in society. He develops a notion of how unexpected occurrences can be incorporated into a model of scientific and technological development that includes the experimental handling of surprises. Gross discusses different projects in ecological design, including Chicago's restoration of the shoreline of Lake Michigan and Germany's revitalization of brownfields near Leipzig. These cases show how ignorance and surprise can successfully play out in ecological design projects, and how the acknowledgment of the unknown can become a part of decision making. The appropriation of surprises can lead to robust design strategies.

Ecological design, Gross argues, is neither a linear process of master planning nor a process of trial and error but a carefully coordinated process of dealing with unexpected turns by means of experimental practice.

About the Author: Matthias Gross is Senior Researcher in the Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology at Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research--UFZ.
