What does it mean to be an academic? A public intellectual? What is the role of the universities today? Who better to ask than the people who for decades have worked, taught, struggled and lived in these places.
Andrew Pickering is Professor Emeritus at the University of Exeter and has been a leading figure in the sociological study of science since its beginnings in the 1970s. He has been interested in the history of quantum physics and cybernetics among other subjects, and in this book you can read about his journey through these fields.
In the Questions & Afthoughts series you will meet some of the finest and most distinguished senior professors—you will meet living history. They are interviewed by young graduate students, who are eager to learn from past experiences of trial and error in academia, both professionally and personally.
