Crossing Boundaries: Contexts of Practice as Common Goods.
In the literature on scientific practices, one finds sustained analyses of the contextualist elements of inquiry.

In this paper I argue that a contextualist analysis of scientific practices as common goods can shed light on the challenges of scientific communication and interdisciplinary collaboration, albeit without invoking Kuhn's problematic notion of incommensurability.
