Science and the University: An Evolutionary Tale - Science, Security and Control

5/26/2008; 56 minutes

Donald Kennedy, the editor-in-chief of Science, asks if in the later phases of the Cold War or in the early phases of the Terror War, universities find themselves witnessing a replay of the old battle between science, which would prefer to have everything open, and security, which would like to have some of it secret. After 9/11 a host of new issues surfaced. At the same time, science was confronting a different kind of security problem: instead of being employed to decide policy, science was being manipulated or kept secure in order to justify preferred policy outcomes.
