Abstract
A striking characteristic of modern knowledge society is the rapid spread of certain ideas and concepts back and forth from everyday to scientific discourses, and across many different contexts of meaning. This book opens up a new road to the study of these 'dynamics of knowledge'. Sociologists of knowledge and recently evolutionary theorists have offered explanations that either attribute social attention to particular ideas or shifts of meaning to the predominance of certain groups. Maasen and Weingart, however, offer a radical new explanation that explains knowledge dynamics by reference to the interaction between metaphors and discourses. The study focuses on three major case studies: - The spread of Darwin's phrase 'struggle for existence'; - the reception of Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions in the sciences and humanities; - the diffusion of the concept of 'chaos' from scientific to everyday discourses. In its innovative theoretical approach (called 'metaphor analysis') and rich empirical analysis the book will be of interest for social and cognitive scientists alike
