In Science We Trust: Überlegungen zum Wissen der Wissenschaften

From the book Competing Knowledges – Wissen im Widerstreit

  • Albert Meier


It is far more judicious to trust in scientificity than in science, namely that research follows the rules of rationality, and that analysis and interpretation are constantly monitored critically. The sciences are not defined by their truth claims, but by their constant self-criticism as the driving force behind all progress to produce more and better knowledge. In this respect, there is hardly any difference between the natural sciences and the humanities.
