THESE VALUES, HOWEVER, CAN ALSO BE SHAPED BY MAN AND SOCIETY. MEN MOLD THE POSITIONS THEY OCCUPY AND, ULTIMATELY, THE VALUE SYSTEMS OF THEIR SOCIETY. BOTH PERSISTENCE AND CHANGE OF SOCIAL FORMS ARE ACHIEVED BY THIS PROCESS OF MUTUAL INFLUENCE. THIS PAPER WAS WRITTEN AS PART OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCE EDUCATION CONSORTIUM.
ITS PURPOSE IS TO PROVIDE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE OF VALUE JUDGMENTS AND OTHER CLAIMS ABOUT VALUES. REASONS ARE GIVEN FOR THE VIEWS THAT VALUE JUDGMENTS ARE INESCAPABLY INVOLVED IN ALL SCIENCES AND THAT IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES MORAL VALUE JUDGMENTS ARE SOMETIMES INVOLVED. THE DISCUSSIONS ARE PRESENTED UNDER SEVEN GENERAL AREAS--(1) ELEMENTARY EXAMPLES OF VALUE CLAIMS, (2) COMMON FALLACIES AND THEIR RESPECTABLE RELATIVES, (3) CONSTRUCTIVE ACCOUNT OF THE FACT/VALUE RELATIONSHIP, (4) EFFECTS OF EMPIRICAL UNCERTAINTY, (5) EFFECTS OF VALUE-ALLERGY, (6) REAL-VALUE CLAIMS WITHIN EVERY SCIENCE, AND (7) MORAL VALUE CLAIMS IN THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES.
