Technology assessment as a discipline of technosciences

Mix of methods and modeling

Abstract

With respect to its methods and research practice, technology assessment (TA) may be regarded as a sub-discipline of the technosciences. This becomes evident when comparing the methodological core of TA with the results of the epistemological analysis of technoscientific disciplines. The problem of mixing methods and modeling has the same structure within the technosciences and can be solved with the same scientific methods.
