Expertise Lost: An Early Case of Technology Assessment

Joerges, Bernward

Inst. Soziologie

This Note traces the curious history of an early technological risk assessment from three vantage points: that of historians of technology, of technology assessment (TA) experts, and of those knowledgeable in SSK. The principle of `double coincidence' is introduced, and the uncertain status of expertise in TA is discussed.
