Anthropology has been playing a central role in questioning the supposed
objective and apolitical character of scientific knowledge by underlining the socio-cultural context
and history of the constitution of any scientific theory. From different
research universes, anthropologists have sought to demonstrate how science
and politics are composed, juxtaposed and produced in the daily work of
social actors. In the wake of what Donna Haraway (1995) pointed out, it is
there would not be the "science" look, but the look of the scientists - always located
in a space (which is not only geographical, but temporal, cultural, marked
by social differences, etc.). It is therefore based on the premise that science and
are mutually constituted and from specific contexts. Following
In this line, this collection explores how certain knowledges are constituted and legitimized, how technologies of government come into action - and, through practices
of the social agents, are (re) formulated - and how through such devices
new categories of analysis, social markers, populations and
subjectivities (FONSECA, MACHADO, 2015)
