Science’s attempt at ‘self-understanding’ curiously enough turned into a set of control mechanisms, either generating ‘closure’ – the scientists’ non-involvement in society – or ‘economisation’, producing patents and other lucrative economic benefits. As descriptions of the ‘good scientist’ become more and more detailed, see, e.g., the explicit rulings about scientific integrity, educational programmes become themselves equally detailed. ‘Ill-fitting’ profiles are thus less likely to gain access and hence an internal critique of the scientific enterprise becomes equally unlikely.
Countermovements such as ‘Slow science’ remain marginal, especially in the exact sciences but also affecting the humanities. Nevertheless in the latter a larger ‘free space’ seems to be available as the cases of mathematical and musical education will show.
