Abstract

As both an undergraduate and graduate student in an English department, I have noticed certain attitudes about science and technology that seemed extremely prevalent to me. These views seemed prevalent in my immediate academic environment and, judging by the literature I was exposed to, prevalent throughout the field. The kind of social constructionist attitudes I mean can be summarized as follows: "Scientific knowledge is not nearly as absolute or objective a thing as it has been characterized as being. It is extremely relative, and no more relates to an objective reality than does rhetoric."
