Quoting Silvio Funtowicz and Jerry Ravetz, the definition is ... “the application of science to public issues where `facts are uncertain, values in dispute, stakes high and decisions urgent.’”

Per the author: " Issues that are put into the category of “post-normal science” are no longer subject to the cardinal requirements of true science: skepticism, universalism, communalism, and disinterestedness."
