|Title||Can Science Be Objective? Longinos Science as Social Knowledge|
|Resource Type||journal article|
In Science as Social Knowledge, Helen Longino offers a contextual analysis ofevidential relevance. She claims that this "contextual empiricism" reconciles the objectivity of science with the claim that science is socially constructed. I argue that while her account does offer key insights into the role that values play in science, her claim that science is nonetheless objective is problematic.
