Intellectual Autonomy and the Politics of Slow Motion

(p.179) Chapter 8 Intellectual Autonomy and the Politics of Slow Motion
Unhastening Science
Liverpool University Press

This chapter provides a broader historical background to the minimalist and pragmatic identification of science that has been attempted so far, in order to deepen the description/justification of its weak autonomy over against other professional pursuits in what has been called the ‘social triangle’. It attempts to reclaim the differential ‘time geography’ of the social triangle and outlines a interpretation of academic freedom and of the ‘idea of the university’ that turns the ‘unhastening’ argument into an explicitly normative and political project.

Keywords:   social triangle, science, scientific autonomy, academic freedom, time geography
