Scientific Understanding and the Control of Nature.
Lacey, Hugh
Science and Education, v8 n1 p13-35 Jan 1999
Suggests that modern science adopts materialist strategies toward relationships between empirical data and theory because of an elective affinity between such strategies and a certain outlook on the control of nature. Claims that, when the roles of social values and cognitive values are kept distinct, sound theory acceptance can still be considered impartial. Contains 34 references. (Author/WRM)
