Exploring Science in Museums
Susan M. Pearce
A&C Black, 1996 - Science - 207 pages
The relationship between science and the public is one of the great contemporary debates, involving questions of accountability, resource, the construction of knowledge and its legal implications. Mutual understanding between scientists and non-scientists is a key figure in the dialogue and here the interpretation of science in museums has a significant part to play.
