Description

Andrew Collier is the boldest defender of objectivity - in science, knowledge, thought, action, politics, morality and religion. In this tribute and acknowledgement of the influence his work has had on a wide readership, his colleagues show that they have been stimulated by his thinking and offer challenging responses. This wide-ranging book covers key areas with which defenders of objectivity often have to engage. Sections are devoted to the following:

* objectivity of value

* objectivity and everyday knowledge

* objectivity in political economy

* objectivity and reflexivity

* objectivity postmodernism and feminism

* objectivity and nature

The diverse contributions range from social and political thought to philosophy, reflecting the central themes of Collier's work.
