Abstract

Abstract:

This essay explores the emergence of "scientific science studies"—a mode of inquiry that engages scientific research as a coparticipant in theoretical exploration. Through exploring Samantha Frost's Bicultural Creatures and my own The Politics of Pain Medicine, I reflect on the potential promise and possible peril inherent in a broad embrace of scientific science studies. Specifically, the essay explores how this emerging mode of inquiry can contribute productively to theoretical development in science studies and to the pursuit of emancipatory political aims. However, I urge caution lest a scientific science studies lead to a reemergence of scientism in the discipline.
