Abstract

One of the great challenges before the sciences in the 21st century is to conceptualize and put into practice public science. The two models of publicity pervasive among the sciences today, access and impact, are insufficient models for addressing national and global crises. A public science will need to let science itself be formed by the norms and practices of publicity, namely visibility before broad audiences and debate and discussion by publics. The challenge question, what constitutes public science?, can be broken into sub-questions in the areas of knowledge, authority, education, communication, and society.
