Mātauranga and Science Revisited

NZAS Council is working on a new statement following new debate on the topic of Mātauranga and Science, following on the Double Special Issues in our New Zealand Science Review last year.

Those special issues are available at the link above. To further support their use, the following around now available as separate pdf documents links.

Foreword – Juliet Gerrard and Tahu Kukutai (pdf)

Mātauranga and Science – Introduction Ocean Mercier and Anne-Marie Jackson (pdf)

Juliet Gerrard and Tahu Kukutai write:

"To turn the tide on anti-science sentiment we need to reframe our science as ‘here to serve’, and ‘here to listen’. Science in Aotearoa New Zealand, and indeed the world, has much to learn from Māori ways of doing, as well as ways of knowing, to bridge these divides."

    If you're a scientist seeing this debate in the Listener, or on twitter, a good first place may be thinking more about the different ways of knowing (epistemologies) operating within science, and how they've caused past schisms. Embracing mātauranga as an essential part of what we do in Aoteraroa will require the same recognition. https://dataenvt.blogspot.com/2021/07/on-how-to-science-debate.html
