Abstract [en]

An important question concerns the role which values, ideology or religion should play in contemporary science. In recent years an influential group of scholars have argued against the received view of science: the idea of an autonomous, value-free and ideologically neutral science. They have instead maintained that we need a new conception of science in which science and values are explicitly linked. We need a science that is infused with, or guided by values, ideology or religion. In this essay an attempt is made to explicate and critically compare these different conceptions of science.
