AGUIRRE, Juan Carlos  y  JARAMILLO, Luis Guillermo. Science between Objectivism and Constructionism. Cinta moebio [online]. 2010, n.38, pp.72-90. ISSN 0717-554X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-554X2010000200001.

ABSTRACT This article proposes an alternative to the discussion between the objectivist and constructionist vision on science. In order to reach such objective, we start from a schematic presentation about what it is called Science Wars; then, we are going to talk in detail about Knor-Cetina’s proposal, showing how it leads to antiscientific attitudes. Later, we will confront the constructionist thesis taken from Knor-Cetina with the realistic ones, proposed by Giere, Kitcher and Hacking, in order to moderate the antiscientific positions, cleansing the traditional polarities. Finally, the Critical Common-Sensism proposed by Susan Haack will be outlined and stated as an option to the confrontation between objectivists and constructionists and also, as a moderate way to understand science in the present-day.

Palabras clave : science; science wars; constructionism; critical realism; critical common-sensism.
