520    Is disseminating information the main purpose of scholarly
       scientific literature? Recent work in science studies 
       signals a shift of emphasis from conceptual to material 
       sources, from thinking to doing, and from representing the
       world to intervening in it. Scientific knowledge 
       production is no longer seen as a process of seeking, 
       collecting, organizing, and processing abstract elements, 
       but instead one of assembling the many different material 
       'bits and pieces' of scientific culture in order to make 
       things work. In Deflating Information, Bernd Frohmann 
       draws on recent work in the social studies of science, 
       finding the most significant material in the coordination 
       of research work, the stabilization of matters of fact, 
       and the manufacture of objectivity. Arguing for a 
       'deflationary' account of information, Frohmann challenges
       the central concept of information studies, thereby laying
       a foundation for a documentalist approach to emerging 
       issues in the field.
