Example text

But, as indicated by analysts, the greatest difficulty of understanding the cultural assets of our time might well be that for the last three centuries Western culture has neglected to update the understanding of its resources. This did not simply happen due to forgetfulness, laziness or lack of time but as a result of the basic belief in an absolutely objective reason, which we already mentioned above. When people believe that this universal rationality can and should guide all things in life, a careful understanding of the limited, contingent, present-day achievements and of their equally limited historical backgrounds becomes completely irrelevant and obsolete.

As such, the authorities are aware that it is necessary to allow the scientific tree to blossom in an ideal growing climate if they wish, sooner or later, to be able to pluck the technological fruits of that tree. In this sense, the authorities are ready to furnish an environment in which various research activities are able to flourish undisturbed. 8 Making Science and Technology Policy Interactive A major point we have made is that the whole mechanism of TA, while self-evident, convincing and attractive at first sight, becomes unworkable and inadequate on further consideration.

Developing ways of interactive rational decision-making are especially important for the founding of a sound science and technology policy. The problems linked to large-scale technological projects were a major catalyst for opening the theoretical and practical debate on interactive rationality. The OECD, in stimulating the development of science and technology policies, has always underlined that this requires an intense awareness of the complex interaction between all social actors involved. The need for a careful study of the interaction between science, technology and society was already one of the conclusions of the first meeting on science and technology policy in 1963.
