Better Red than Dead--Putting an End to the Social Irrelevance of Postwar Philosophy of Science
Howard, Don
Science & Education, v18 n2 p199-220 Feb 2009
This paper asks what is necessary in a theory of science adequate to the task of empowering philosophers of science to participate in public debate about science in a social context. It is argued that an adequate theory of science must be capable of theorizing the role of values and motives in science and that it must take seriously the irreducibly social nature of scientific knowledge.
