Abstract

One proposed criterion for discerning legitimate value influences in science is to allow values that further justice-related social aims. According to this moral account, promoting human egalitarian values is legitimate and productive in science because of the moral superiority of those values. I argue that we can have a more general and feasible guide for science without appealing to the social aims of science. Earlier proposals that are more empirically focused (e.g., highlighting the significance of knowledge) can better achieve the intended outcomes of the moral account.
