Abstract [en]

Many deep concerns in the life sciences and medicine have to do with the enactment, ordering and displacement of a broad range of values. This volume articulates a pragmatist stance for studying the making of values in society, which means taking seriously the work scientists, regulators, analysts, professionals, and publics regularly do to define what counts as proper conduct, what is economically valuable, and what is known and worth knowing. The volume proposes the word valuography to indicate an empirically oriented research program into the simultaneous making of seemingly separate values. Exploring various sites within life sciences and medicine, this volume features in-depth studies ranging from how zoos make animal value to how health care administrators attempts to engineer fair and efficient health care markets.
