Narrating Science: Risks and Opportunities in the Information Society

During the last years the popularity of more and more radical antiscientific theories has increased. Their diffusion create problems to the relationship among citizens and science. It is a global phenomenon and we can recognize its effects in different fields of science such as the international flat-earth movement which questions the elementary assumption of astronomy concerning the solar system or the various local No-Vax movements which criticizes the opportunity of massive vaccinations. The relational communication dimension is one of the essential cornerstones of this wave of antiscientific positions because it feeds common thought practices and consequently causes collective actions. At the same time, the emersion of this collective social communities gives us the opportunity to meditate on the weakness of the diffusion of scientific culture in contemporary society. This weakness is a striking paradox in our information society, permeated by the widespread diffusion in everyday life of so many technological innovations directly and mainly derived from scientific research. The relation among sciences, technology and information society is, therefore, one of the main path of investigation in this monographic section and intercepts a new appreciation of the role of public understanding of science as a tool for the promotion of a more informed and aware society in every field of human coexistence: social, economic, anthropologic, economic, cultural and political...

In an age of disintermediation and fading of great mass movements, the "spectre" of solitude seems to appear on the political, social and media scene. Following Mair, we think, for example, of how "the widening gap between rulers and ruled has facilitated the often strident populist challenge" (Mair: 2013), in a political space characterized by the disengagement of both elites and citizens.

On the one hand, and as proof of this disengagement, no political formations that could effectively deal with current phenomena of existential precarization or the challenges posed by migratory flows have emerged. On the other hand, despite the fact that in recent years the welfare state has been reduced in many European countries, due to the intensification of austerity measures, the formation of protest movements similar to those of 2012 (e.g. Indignados and Occupy) has not been observed. Finally, with respect to subjective level, we consider the detachment from politics - both as discourse and practice - well exemplified by the inability to build collective representations of individual problems.
