Example text

And surely one scientist’s good sense will not be identical to another’s. Were a univocal good sense shared, there would not be as many debates within the sciences as there are. The pluralist, on the other hand, can argue that critical discourse among members of a community weeds out many background assumptions, but not all. Plurality of approaches is a resource, not a hindrance. Refining and improving the methods of a given approach enables researchers to produce better knowledge Signaled by the founding of the Society for the Philosophy of Science in Practice in 2006.

What’s wrong with holism? A point that Longino stresses is that it is very hard to reconcile incommensurability of theories with their incompatibility, as Kuhn, at least, the paradigm holist, appears to want to do. ” This is a problem, I take it, for a monist holist like Kuhn, someone who sees the progress of science as a sequence of incompatible and incommensurable theories each superseding the previous one. 1 Contextualism is, moreover, in obvious respects a holistic doctrine. Kuhn argued that a theory could only be understood in relation to a paradigm, in the sense of that term that refers to the background assumptions, methods, instruments, and so on involved in the application of the theory.

Addressing these questions lies in the future of contextualism. I’m not persuaded that the first question is one that still needs to be addressed. I think there is a perfectly clear answer: scientific models of complex phenomena are necessarily partial and different models address different parts. I don’t see why this implies any lack of objectivity or rationality. We might wonder whether at some imagined end of inquiry the sum of all possible models will equate to the complete truth about a phenomenon.
