Resumen


El artículo revisa críticamente la historia conceptual de la noción paraguas de comunicación pública de la ciencia y la tecnología (CPCT) y de los tres modelos básicos de comunicación surgidos a su amparo. Tres son los factores interdependientes que explican la emergencia de estos modelos: (1) cambios estructurales en la práctica científico-tecnológica y cambios concomitantes en los modos de comunicar la ciencia, (2) diversidad de actores sociales relacionados con la producción, gestión, comunicación y recepción de conocimientos científicos, y (3) desigual percepción que se tiene del público receptor.

Palabras clave


comunicación pública de la ciencia y la tecnología; comprensión pública de la ciencia; ciencia y sociedad; ciencia en sociedad; modelo de déficit cognitivo; periodismo científico; divulgación de la ciencia; relaciones públicas en la ciencia
