National Academy of Sciences. National Academy of Engineering. Institute of Medicine. National Research Council. The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. The focus of this chapter is the question whether the social-scientization of social control regimes in modern society implies changes to how science contributes to the ongoing rationalization of human life. For this purpose, the analytical concept of “knowledge-based arrangements of social control” is introduced. Thereby, basic themes of this volume should be outlined in more detail: the Cited by: 2.

Science could be regulated by legislation if areas are seen as harmful, immoral, or these reasons science regulation may be closely related to religion, culture and society.
