    Metaphors and the Dynamics of Knowledge.Sabine Maasen - 2000 - Routledge.
    This book opens up a new route to the study of knowledge dynamics and the sociology of knowledge. The focus is on the role of metaphors as powerful catalysts and the book dissects their role in the construction of theories of knowledge and will therefore be of vital interest to social and cognitive scientists alike.

    Democratization of Expertise?: Exploring Novel Forms of Scientific Advice in Political Decision-Making.Sabine Maasen & Peter Weingart (eds.) - 2005 - Springer.
    ‘Scientific advice to politics’, the ‘nature of expertise’, and the ‘relation between experts, policy makers, and the public’ are variations of a topic that currently attracts the attention of social scientists, philosophers of science as well as practitioners in the public sphere and the media. This renewed interest in a persistent theme is initiated by the call for a democratization of expertise that has become the order of the day in the legitimation of research funding. The new significance of ‘participation’ (...)

  4. On Willing Selves: Neoliberal Politics Vis-À-Vis the Neuroscientific Challenge.Sabine Maasen & Barbara Sutter (eds.) - 2007 - Plagrave Macmiilan.
    Currently, the neurosciences challenge the concept of will to be scientifically untenable, specifying that it is our brain rather than our "self" that decides what we want to do. At the same time, we seem to be confronted with increasing possibilities and necessities of free choice in all areas of social life. Based on up-to-date (empirical) research in the social sciences and philosophy, the authors convened in this book address this seeming contradiction: By differentiating the physical, the psychic, and the (...)

    Voluntary Action: Brains, Minds, and Sociality.Sabine Maasen, Wolfgang Prinz & Gerhard Roth (eds.) - 2003 - Oxford University Press.
    We all know what a voluntary action is - we all think we know when an action is voluntary, and when it is not. Yet, performing and action and defining it are different matters. What counts as an action? When does it begin? Does the conscious desire to perform an action always precede the act? If not, is it really a voluntary action? This is a debate that crosses the boundaries of Philosophy, Neuroscience, Psychology, and Social Science. This book brings (...)

    Techno-bio-politics. On Interfacing Life with and Through Technology.Benjamin Lipp & Sabine Maasen - 2022 - NanoEthics 16 (1):133-150.
    Technology takes an unprecedented position in contemporary society. In particular, it has become part and parcel of governmental attempts to manufacture life in new ways. Such ideas concerning the governance of life organize around the same contention: that technology and life are, in fact, highly interconnectable. This is surprising because if one enters the sites of techno-scientific experimentation, those visions turn out to be much frailer and by no means “in place” yet. Rather, they afford or enforce constant interfacing work, (...)

    Selves in Turmoil - Neurocognitive and Societal Challenges of the Self.Sabine Maasen - 2007 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 14 (1-2):252-270.
    As the cognitive neurosciences set out to challenge our understanding of consciousness, the existing conceptual panoply of meanings attached to the term remains largely unaccounted for. By way of bibliometric analysis, the following study first reveals the breadth and shift of meanings over the last decades, the main tendency being a more 'brainy' concept of consciousness. On this basis, the emergence of consciousness studies is regarded as a 'trading zone' (Galison) in which experimental, philosophical and experiential accounts are dialectically engaged. (...)

    Oxytocin: Vom Geburts- zum Sozialhormon: Zur hormonellen Regierbarkeit von Soziabilität aka Gesellschaft.Sabine Maasen & Xenia Steinbach - 2018 - NTM Zeitschrift für Geschichte der Wissenschaften, Technik und Medizin 26 (1):1-30.
    ZusammenfassungIn massenmedialen Darstellungen wird das Hormon Oxytocin gegenwärtig als biochemische Basis von Sozialität und wirkmächtiger neuropharmakologischer Lösungsansatz für die Herstellung der gesellschaftlichen Kohäsion verhandelt. Mit Blick auf die ursprüngliche Bedeutung des Hormons als „Körperhormon“ zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts soll im vorliegenden Artikel die außergewöhnliche Karriere von Oxytocin vom Regulator des Geburtsvorgangs hin zum Regulator der Gesellschaft nachgezeichnet werden. Woraus bezieht eine solch voraussetzungsvolle Behauptung ihre Intelligibilität und Akzeptabilität? Unsere Analyse des wissenschaftlichen Diskurses um Oxytocin, des massenmedialen Diskurses seit den (...)
