抄録

The aim of this paper is to investigate how we can reunite social philosophy and philosophy of science to address problems in science and technology. First, referring to Don Howard's, George Reisch's, and Philip Mirowski's works, I shall briefly explain how philosophy of science was depoliticised during the cold war. Second, I shall examine Steve Fuller's criticism of Thomas Kuhn. Third, I shall scrutinise Philip Kitcher's view of well-ordered science. Fourth, I shall emphasise the importance of autonomy and argue that philosophy of science needs to cultivate a critical attitude towards authority. Fifth, drawing upon Ian Jarvie's social reading of Karl Popper, I shall argue that Popper's philosophy can be a model for reuniting social philosophy and philosophy of science.
