Resumen

JIMENEZ-ALBORNOZ, Juan. Neutrality of descriptions and commitment of the researcher. Cinta moebio [online]. 2019, n.64, pp.99-113. ISSN 0717-554X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0717-554x2019000100099.

The distinction between facts judgments and value judgments is the basis, at the same time, of both the neutrality of descriptions and the inherent commitment of the researcher, without devaluing the validity of value judgments. It is relevant to acknowledge the difference between what grounds a fact judgment from what grounds a value judgment. What is invalid -as fact judgment and as value judgment- is the attempt to generate neutral recommendations only from facts, the technocratic idea of an intervention that do not involves commitment. There is no such thing as a neutral action, and the real of neutrality is reduce only to description.

Palabras clave : value neutrality; commitment; fact judgments; value judgments; positive normative.
