Abstract

The question asked in this book, Will Science Remain Human?, focuses on the fact that contemporary science is primarily performed through technological means. This unprecedented technological apparatus is not only reducing some human roles, but seems to have the potential for altering some fundamental structures of science itself. The supply of data from all knowledge domains as well as the availability of artificial forms of reasoning, judging, and deciding is radically transforming how science has been working lately, and even more how it will operate in the future. From this perspective “a renewed understanding of the human character of science” seems necessary as rationality tends to be constructed more and more as a sequence of machine readable codes and a series of ultrafast processes for elaborating information. Moreover, the risk exists for scientific knowledge to be “represented in a simplified way, hiding human responsibility, freedom, creativity and choice”
