Collapse of the Fact/Value Dichotomy and Other Essays by Hilary Putnam
Book DescriptionAlthough it is on occasion important and useful to distinguish between factual claims and value judgments, the distinction becomes, Hilary Putnam argues, positively harmful when identified with a dichotomy between the objective and the purely "subjective." Lively, concise, and wise, his book prepares the way for a renewed mutual fruition of philosophy and the social sciences.
