As a person with more experience in areas of public policy than university
activity, I must say the word 'objective' is too often the first or last
resort of interested parties, including the wicked. There are no
perspectives, in science, the humanities or public policy (not necessarily
exclusive fields :-) , which do not have values, interests and assumptions
at their base and it is the exegesis of these and their impact on reasoning
which should be the intelligent person's burden anywhere, in relation to our
own arguments as well as others.
All research sponsorship should be explicit. The anxieties about their own
careers of all peer reviewers should be explicitly accepted and understood
in their assessment of challenging propositions. Huh, likely!
