Faced with the different ways of understanding scientific objectivity, with a clear prevalence of the empirical-experimental sense, which entails some epistemic discrimination with those areas of knowledge, whose criteria of cognitive validity are different from experimental contrast, Professor Evandro Agazzi, with his scientific realism and open and inclusive epistemological conception, sets up a concept of objectivity suitable for all scientific and academic work. Indeed, with its distinction between objectivity in a weak and strong sense, Agazzi argues that these ways of understanding objectivity can include and harmonize the varied epistemological horizons from which it is possible to do science and academia more relevant and appropriate to the contemporary context, characterized by dynamism and complexity.
