Science as a FACTory?

Opening Night for the Closing Workshop of the DK “The Sciences in Historical, Philosophical and Cultural Contexts”

Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Wien

Seminar, Workshop, Kurs

The dichotomy between facts and values, and, relatedly, that between objectivity and subjectivity, has a long track-record in the history of thought. The traditional view, which is still dominant in popular culture but also in parts of the academic community, is that science occupies a privileged status as society’s “fact-factory.” In this workshop we bring together a variety of different perspectives – historical, philosophical and scientific – to discuss whether this value-free ideal of science holds up to closer analysis of the scientific practices.

The opening night for the workshop includes a keynote lecture by Sabina Leonelli (University of Exeter) on "Investigating science through involvement".
