Abstract

The investigations and politically-motivated attacks taking place in climate change studies confirm that scientific knowledge comes about as social constructions shaped by non-scientific events and circumstances such as interests, power relationships and negotiations. As both Lynn Hankinson Nelson and Foucault wrote truth claims are the result of convergence and alignment rather than the cause of agreement within some epistemic communities.
