    Abstract

    The article reflects on the impact of the relationship between ‘value judgments,’ the ‘suspension’ of criticism and ‘conversationism’ on the Quality of science, on the basis of an assessment of two different strands of scientific epistemology: Quantificationism and Interpretationism. These epistemologies are represented in the studies of Meyer en Smith et al on the one side and Avery and Forsythe on the other. I have reflected upon these studies, because they demonstrate that the Quality of science is neither to be found in one specific ontology, epistemology or methodology, nor in rhetoric and storytelling. The ‘Dynamic Quality’ of science is to be found in the dialectics of the objective and the subjective. The Article critically reflects upon the human rights/multinational discourse in international law circles.
