About the Book

The present edition is, indeed, a serious effort to examine the relation between science and human values in philosophical and historical perspective. This edition explains the nature of science and its relation to human values from the beginning of civilization to the evolutionary science of Darwin. It is common acceptance that science and human values cannot move together because science deals with facts, not with values, and its corollary that human value lies outside the realm of science. This objection to the mixing of science and values gradually disappears. Probably the most influential factor currently sustaining the science-values dichotomy is the prevailing acceptance of the contention of professional philosophy that it is logically impossible to determine what ‘ought to be’ from what ‘is’, or to derive ethical priorities from objective facts.
