    Sammanfattning : By their very nature, attempts by civil society organizations to promote democracy abroad involve cooperation and contact across the borders of nation states. The dissemination of the ideas and practices of the promoters is often essential; in the case of Swedish democracy promotion, popular education or folkbildning has been important. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Den torgförda biologin. Studier i populärvetenskapens problem och tematik Biology in the agora. Studies on problems and themes in popular science

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Institutionen för idéhistoria och vetenskapsteori

    Författare :Kaj Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; popular science; popular knowledge; popular biology; popularisation; Ludwik Fleck; history of science; history of biology; thought collective; thought style;

    Sammanfattning : The chief aim in this work is to demonstrate the fruitfulness of Ludwik Fleck’s philosophy of science for stimulating a number of new viewpoints in the study of popular science and popularisation from the vantage point of history of ideas and science. Taking its point of departure in the question, ”What is popular science?”, the present work articulates a comprehensive theoretical framework for addressing problems regarding the place of popular science and its multiple functions, as well as necessary preconditions needed for popularisation.

  4. 4. Unleashing Science Popularisation: Studies on Science as Popular Culture

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Andreas Gunnarsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; science popularisation; popular culture; public understanding of science; science and the media;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to broaden the concept of science popularisation. It argues that the conventional view of popularisation as the public communication of appropriately simplified versions of established facts to lay audiences fails to capture the multifaceted nature of popularisation practices through which science and popular culture are recombined.

  5. 5. Shadows of Cavernous Shades: Charting the Chiaroscuro of Realistic Computing

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Sammanfattning : During the early 1990s, a novel style of programming often referred to as component-oriented programming quickly grew popular as the state-of-the-art in graphical user interface and client/server development on Windows-based personal computers, largely in competition with object-oriented programming, a partly similar, partly different programming paradigm, with which component-orientation is often compared, combined, and confused. Also during the 1990s, the world-wide web spread its arachnoid gossamer over the globe with deep-ranging ramifications for software component technology. LÄS MER
