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 speakers will be Mitchell Ash, Hernan Bobadilla, Charles Djordjevic, Robert Frühstückl, Martin Glösmann, Catherine Herfeld, Raffael Krismer, Martin Kusch, Sabina Leonelli, Fabian Link, Alexander Linsbichler, Federica Russo, Raphael Scholl, Thomas Uebel, Sophie Juliane Veigl and Hanna Lucia Worliczek.
