Contents Notes Introduction: science wars and policy wars -- The rise of the science advisor -- Origins of the value-free ideal for science -- The moral responsibilities of scientists -- The structure of values in science -- Objectivity in science -- The integrity of science in the policy process -- Values and practices. "Since World War II, most philosophers of science have argued that science should remain "value-free." Heather E. Douglas argues that such a standard is neither adequate nor desirable. She lobbies for a new ideal in which values serve an essential function throughout scientific inquiry, but their role is constrained at key points, thereby protecting the integrity and objectivity of science."--Jacket.
