    Longino, Helen E. Science As Social Knowledge. Princeton University Press, 1990.
    Longino claimed that scientist take observations and data of the sort which are not by themselves indication for or against any specific premises. The significance of any specific data for any particular premise is decided by the beliefs and perceptions held by humans, as well as the assumptions regarding the sort of data that supports the different premises. Even when this happens, there remains a logical gap between evidence and full justification of interesting scientific theories

    Longino seeks to break the current deadlock in the ongoing wars between philosophers and sociologists of science — academic battles founded on disagreement about the role of social forces in constructing scientific knowledge. She challenges the assumption that social forces are a source of bias and irrationality, arguing that social interaction actually assists us in securing firm, rationally based knowledge: https://press.princeton.edu/books/paperback/9780691088761/the-fate-of-knowledge
