Abstract: The main goal in this chapter is to explore how a mapping of knowledge and ignorance mobilization dynamics in science can play a role in science evaluation and policymaking. The standard science epistemic map – where only knowledge is valued – is thus unfolded, making knowledge and ignorance mobilization dynamics more visible. An emphasis on mapping is in keeping with practices by natural scientists who construct visualizations for natural scientific knowledge, making it more visible and thereby hopefully easier to communicate. The chapter closes with reflections on the role of mapping in the sociology of scientific knowledge and ignorance.
