dc.description.abstractHay muchos modos de investigar, muchos estilos. En este ensayo se trata de contrastar el modo universitario de investigar en ciencias sociales con el modo de investigar de los think tanks. La definición de problemas, el modo de abordarlos, la orientación temporal, la interdisciplinariedad y, finalmente, la audiencia a la que se dirigen y el medio de que se sirven, marcan contrastes claros. Un contraste que explica (al menos parcialmente) el creciente influjo de los think tanks en el discurso público frente a la menor relevancia de las universidades en el mismo. Y ello a pesar de que la investigación universitaria y básica es la fuente de la que, inevitablemente, se nutren los think tanks. Se concluye con una llamada de atención a la investigación académica en ciencias sociales para que intente recobrar la relevancia pública, perdida en buena medida por un prurito “cientifista” que corre el riesgo de aislarla.
dc.description.abstractThere are many methods and styles of academic investigation. This essay tries to contrast the investigative methods of social scientists who do research in universities with those who work in think tanks. These clear contrasts include the mode of defining problems, the methods of approaching them, the temporal orientation, the interdisciplinary nature of the work, the intended audience, and the medium used to display the findings. A contrast that explains (at least partially) the growing influence of think tanks in public discourse is the shrinking relevance of universities in it, despite the fact that university research is the source from which, inevitably, think tanks are nourished. This essay concludes with a call for attention to academic research in the social sciences in order to regain its public relevance, largely lost by a “scientific” requirement that runs the risk of isolating it.
