|Abstrakt EN:||Our poster presents research in experimental philosophy, in which our team, consisting of a philosopher, a sociologist and scientists, examines the concept of scientific objectivity. While natural science is often equated with objectivity, our project looks in more detail at how objectivity is defined and achieved in various scientific disciplines, such as physics or biology. At the same time, we focus on the factors such as various economic, institutional or social practices, that facilitate or hinder objectivity in current science. For this purpose, we designed a multi-level research plan, which includes interviews, focus groups, and questionnaires, and we recruited working scientists to participate. We will apply these methods to collect and define practical situations in which scientific objectivity is in question, and we will solicit scientists’ verdicts on them. Microscopy, as an interdisciplinary field in which various sciences converge, is an ideal candidate for such research.|
