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...
