This book encourages curriculum studies scholars to engage more intently with science matters. Weaver also suggests there is a need to reconnect science with an ideal of democracy. Science and democracy are not naturally connected but need to be vigorously defended and allied against the threats of neo-liberal politics and neo-liberal economics which favor a form of despotic capitalism and utility over citizen participation. The book also includes chapters on Nietzsche's science, postcolonial thought, and feminist science as well chapters of the rhetoric of science and scientific expertise.
