From Tapestry to Loom: Broadening the Perspective on Values in Science

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
After raising some minor philosophical points about Kevin Elliott’s A Tapestry of Values (2017), I argue that we should expand on the themes raised in the book and that philosophers of science need to pay as much attention to the loom of science (i.e., the institutional structures which guide the pursuit of science) as the tapestry of science. The loom of science includes such institutional aspects as patents, funding sources, and evaluation regimes that shape how science gets pursued, and that attending to these aspects will enable us to provide more robust guidance on the values that infuse the tapestry of science.
