COMMENTS

Science communication: frequently public, occasionally intellectual<http://sissa.us4.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=42b4b267eccdc71e18618a4f2&id=ae140b7d04&e=615f98ca10>
Rod Lamberts
This article provides a starting position and scene-setter for an invited commentary series on science communication and public intellectualism.

Why speak?<http://sissa.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=42b4b267eccdc71e18618a4f2&id=5dd23575e6&e=615f98ca10>
Emma L. Johnston
In an information free-for-all why should scientists bother to add their voice? In this commentary piece I argue there is an increasingly important role for scientists amongst the growing ranks of public intellectuals and the many who style themselves as such.

Science communication and the public intellectual: a view from philosophy<http://sissa.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=42b4b267eccdc71e18618a4f2&id=2ab84fa278&e=615f98ca10>
Patrick Stokes
While science communication has become increasingly professionalised, philosophers have been far less active in, and reflective about, how we talk to the public.

Evolution of a public intellectual: coral reef biologist Jeremy Jackson<http://sissa.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=42b4b267eccdc71e18618a4f2&id=a035fadcb9&e=615f98ca10>
Randy Olson
This commentary is both a case study of the evolution of one public intellectual, and an analysis of how he has broadened his voice beyond the standard academic bubble.

Babelfish and the peculiar symbiosis of public intellectualism and academia<http://sissa.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=42b4b267eccdc71e18618a4f2&id=6d840643df&e=615f98ca10>
Kylie Walker
Arthur Dent’s reluctant hitchhike through the Milky Way would not have been possible without the babelfish, which was nourished by his brain waves and in return decoded foreign languages for him. In much the same way, public intellectuals serve as science and technology academia’s babelfish for the non-STEM savvy.
