Item description for Science and liberation: A blind spot in scientific research : exploring a new structure of reality by Gerben J Stavenga...

This study is an inquiry into the foundations of science, evoked especially by contemporary crises. Its methodological approach is determined by the fact that there are indications, that basic and general assumptions underlying current research traditions schould be questioned. An analysis of modern physics, and of elementary particle tracks in particular, gives rise to the suspicion that scientific research has a fundamental blind spot, characterized by a new subject-object relation. We encounter the same subject-object relation, and a corresponding concept of reality, in a research programme deviating from the regular sciences, viz. the theology of Karl Barth. Used as a means of contrast, this programme can draw science's attention to a new concept of knowledge and reality possible in principle. Furthermore, the present inquiry brings to light that there are altogether four different subject-object relations with their concomitant basic structures of reality. The blind spot pointed out by the means of contrast is one of these four structures, the most fundamental one, to be precise. Freedom and liberation prove to be essential features of this new structure. Hence thes features will characterize science, once it develops itself further by focussing on this new structure of reality. The reality then dealt with by science will turn science into liberation science.
