Is everything measurable? Critical views on rating and quantification

Editors: Yohai Hakak, Lea Kacen and Michal Krumer-Nevo.

Published by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Measurement, quantification, and grading are an integral part of economic and social life and central in the field of science, education, and artistic creation. Despite their centrality, their diverse implications have hardly been systematically critically examined. The frequent use of these tools for the purposes of judgment and evaluation is based on the assumption that these are neutral tools of a purely technical nature and absent from any ideological or value aspect. The file of articles in this book calls into question these assumptions. It examines the measurement. quantification and ranking in their broad context and from their view as cultural and social phenomena dependent on place and time. Special attention is given to the ways in which these tools are used to shape the face of society, manage and controlling populations and to allocate resources, or to prevent them..

Authors in the book: Yair Barark, Raz Chen-Morris, Michael Zakim, Aner Govrin, Arie krampf, Eitan Blum, Anat leibler, Shahlav Stoller-Liss and Shifra Scheartz, Motti Neiger, Gabi Weiman, Yohai Hakak, Gad Yair.
