How do representations of science contribute to forming a worldview?

I arrive at my own answer to this question through consuming science in the media and my own work in Washington, DC as an intern/aspiring science writer.

The name “Views from Somewhere” is one piece of the answer. I borrowed the phrase from Donna Haraway, a feminist scholar and scientist, whose view on science can be explained by her belief that knowledge is situated, taken from partial views and positions in the ongoing formation of a new whole.
