Science in crisis

An abbreviated list of a new genre yoking together meta-science, sociology of science, and social epistemology, focusing on varieties of scientific malfeasance:

R. Barker Baussell, The Problem with Science: The Reproducibility Crisis and What to do About It (2021)

Aubrey Clayton, Bernoulli’s Fallacy: Statistical Illogic and the Crisis of Modern Science (2021)

Philip Mirowski, Science-Mart (2011)

Stuart Ritchie, Science Fictions: Exposing Fraud, Bias, Negligence, and Hype in Science (2020)

There’s also a generic counterpart that defends science against these worries (cf. Latour on critique running out of steam):

Mark B. Brown, Science in Democracy: Expertise, Institutions, and Representation (2009)
