Engaging with the Radical Science Movement and the endeavors of Hilary Rose to think of a consequential politics of science, this chapter addresses the problematic amalgam of scientific practices as “science” and considers what might be required in turning to an exploration of practices. It explores the “practice turn” in science studies and the risks involved in dissolving the amalgam that identifies “science” and “knowledge,” arguing that constructionist accounts of scientific practices need also to consider the matters of concern that bring practitioners together and make them hesitate. Underlining the divergences between practices and moving away from the consensual reasons that overlook the singularity of what matters becomes a crucial factor in speaking well of the sciences without according them the right to judge others.
