    Presumably, most scientists believe that scientific knowledge is intrinsically good, i.e. good in itself, apart from consequences. This doctrine should be rejected. The arguments which are usually given for it — e.g. by philosophers like W.D. Ross, R. Brandt, and W. Frankena — are quite inconclusive. In particular, it may be doubted whether knowledge is in fact desired for its own sake, and even i f it is, this would not support the doctrine. However, the doctrine is open to counter-examples.

  • Science and Values: The Aims of Science and Their Role in Scientific Debate.Larry Laudan - 1984 - University of California Press.
    Laudan constructs a fresh approach to a longtime problem for the philosopher of science: how to explain the simultaneous and widespread presence of both agreement and disagreement in science. Laudan critiques the logical empiricists and the post-positivists as he stresses the need for centrality and values and the interdependence of values, methods, and facts as prerequisites to solving the problems of consensus and dissent in science.

    These two volumes, edited by Mario Bunge – one of the few avant-gardists in both physics and philo sophy – contain both stimulating and frustrating material. Some of the writers knowingly exert pressure on their readers (Clifford Truesdell); others flatter them by assuming that they know so much. The volumes are packed with material, and it takes a long time just to read them, let alone understand them. Had I known of anyone competent to understand these two volumes in all (...)
