Abstrakt

The paper is a contribution to the current debates on the value neutrality of the social sciences. The true meaning of claiming the value neutrality of the latter is not to be found in rejecting their value dependence, but rather 1/ in clearly differentiating between truth, as the relationship of the contents of our statements to objective reality, and value as the relationship of objective reality to our needs and interests; 2/ in differentiating between value and valuation; 3/ in differentiating between factual statements about values, to which the standards of truthfulness apply, and value statements, to which the standard of value appropriateness apply; 4/ in differentiating between cognitive (scientific) and non-cognitive (non-scientific) values; 5/ in clearly differentiating between positive values, which help the science in its approaching the objective truth and new achievements, and negative values, which are obstructive to this process; 6/ in uniting the objectivity of science with progressive social movements.
