Professor Samir Okasha was the guest of the Arabic Cultural Forum in UK on 8th September 2023. He kindly spoke about an important topic titled: Can science be objective?. In his presentation Professor Okasha mentioned the structure of scientific revolution as it was outlined by Thomas Kuhn in 1962. Professor Okasha mentioned that science as concerned with objective facts is free from social and political values. He concluded that there should be a distinction between facts and values. The value statement is about how world should be whilst the factual statement is about how the world is.
