  1. Goodwin, CD, The promise of expertise: Walter Lippmann and the policy sciences, Policy Sciences, vol. 28 no. 4 (1995), pp. 317-345, ISSN 0032-2687 [doi]

    Walter Lippman addressed over his lifetime many of the questions raised still in the policy sciences about the proper role for the social scientist in the policy process, the potential contributions of various disciplines to an understanding of the issues, the kinds of circumstances most likely to nurture excellent policy analysis and the means whereby both a narrow elite and a wider public can be well informed about critical subjects and policy options. This article examines Lippmann's intellectual formation to deal with these questions and his reflections on institutions designed to foster policy analysis as well as the proper training of a policy expert. The article concludes with an examination of Lippmann's career as a practitioner in the policy world, and especially as a bridge between different communities. © 1995 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
