PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1978:199 - 209 (1978)
Carnap reports that while all of the members of the Vienna Circle "were strongly interested in social and political progress," except for Neurath, they all insisted that the "intrusion" of political points of view into the methodology of science would violate the purity of scientific method. In opposition to this still dominant view of the relationship between moral/political values and objective inquiry, this paper specifies four ways in which certain moral/political values are necessary for maximizing objective inquiry in social science. If this argument is correct, a better conception of objectivity is needed.
