Helen characterizes the approach of the conference as social epistemology to science and explains that this position "arises from the consideration of arguments about the indeterminacy of hypotheses by evidence." She developed this argument and proposed that the challenges it poses to the claims for objectivity "can only be met if we drive ourselves to the thought of knowledge as a range in a social and interactive context." The philosopher suggests that "the observance of certain standards in and by an inquiring community reduces (but does not eliminate) the role of values ​​in science."
