Abstract

Science and technology are central to almost all domains of human activity. The study of science and technology is evident in subdisciplines such as philosophy of science, philosophy of technology, sociology of knowledge, and history of science and technology, and in interdisciplines such as Science and Technology Studies. To date, psychology has been marginal in this space. We argue that this is in part owing to psychology viewing itself as a science (and not an object of study). It is also a result of previous attempts toward developing a psychology of science and technology explicitly adopting a narrow epistemological stance that is at odds with the broader epistemic foundation of Science and Technology Studies and related fields.
