Values in Science

Motivation and Personality

Abraham Maslow




science was not, is not, and cannot
be completely objective, which is to say, independent of human values.

Methods are
ethically neutral; pi-oblems and questions may not be, for sooner or later,
they involve all the knotty arguments about values. - Abraham Maslow, Motivation and Personality (1954)
