This text brings together major European writers, including Ulrich Beck, to discuss issues related to technology, risk and nature. The first section examines the "instrumentalization" of nature and the relation between science, technology and expert systems. These themes are elaborated in the second section by a discussion of the implication of technology (and risk) in late-modern ideas of the "self", individualization and reflexivity. The third section examines the institutionalization of enivironmentalism, the politics of ecology and the role that the social sciences can play in these debates.
