Realization to: 2020
Summary: The project deals with research in experimental philosophy, in which our team, consisting of a philosopher, a sociologist and scientists, examines the concept of scientific objectivity. While natural science is often equated with objectivity, our project looks in more detail at how objectivity is defined and achieved in various scientific disciplines, such as physics or biology. At the same time, we focus on the factors such as various economic, institutional or social practices, that facilitate or hinder objectivity in current science. For this purpose, we designed a multi-level research plan, which includes interviews, focus groups, and questionnaires. We will apply these methods to collect and define practical situations in which scientific objectivity is in question.
