ABSTRACT

Recently, it is not strange to see that the famous natural scientists have tried to answer the old metaphysical questions. It is good to see, on a positive side, the collaboration between research of natural science and humanities research, but at the same time it negatively means the shrinkage of the research territory of humanities. Social science, originally aimed at seeking for the solutions of the social problems, has also adopted the methodology of scientific research. Scientific research becomes the standard of every academic research. This situation raised a question about the nature and role of humanities research. Since the Scientific Revolution, the key to the success of natural science is the objectivity of their methodology. Then, could we request for objectivity in humanities research? I have tried to argue in this paper the objectivity of humanities research with the help of the phenomenological methodology. And it shows which role humanities research has in the research about the so-called social dilemmas.
