Project description: 

This project, initiated by the Axis as part of the redeployment with Université de Paris, aims to explore, summarise and discuss the existing literature that provides insight into the nature and operation of anti-scientific attitudes. To this end, the review draws on literature from a variety of academic fields, such as history, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, and addresses a number of topics relevant to the study of anti-science attitudes, such as the environment, public health and scientific governance. The journal provides an overview of anti-science attitudes, their mechanisms and determinants, with a view to encouraging reflection on the issues surrounding the public's perception of science and on ways of improving it.
