Sandra HardingFor close to five decades social justice science movements have criticized the idea that only value-free scientific research can count as objective. They have criticized 'Mr. Nowhere', who supposedly can see everywhere in the world from no particular place in it. What is the new 'proper scientific self' that could replace this 'Mr. Nowhere'? This presentation will focus on three such new kinds of proper scientific selfs which have emerged in writings from feminisms and other social justice movements.
