Popper's Fact-Standard Dualism Contra "Value Free" Social Science.
Eidlin, Fred H.
Social Science Quarterly, v64 n1 p1-18 Mar 1983
Noncognitivism, the belief that normative statements (unlike empirical statements) do not convey objective knowledge is contrasted to Karl Popper's "critical dualism," which maintains that science is imbued with values and value judgments. Noncognitivism impedes the development of a social scientific method which would integrate empirical research with norms, decisions, and judgments. (Author/KC)
