"Desde la decada de los anos sesenta, las concepciones positivistas de la ciencia se han visto cada vez mas sometidas a constantes ataques, dirigidos a menudo por filosofos de la ciencia feministas. Resultado de ello es que la estricta vision positivista de la ciencia como dadora de la verdad y fuente de todo conocimiento sobre el mundo empirico ha quedado destruida, segun describire e ilustrare. Hay mucho que ganar al comprender mejor las nuevas concepciones de lo que es la ciencia. Pero, debemos tener cuidado en no descartar a la ciencia misma en nuestro intento por reducir su arrogancia. Muchos cientificos de hoy se niegan a ceptar ser miembros del grupo positivista ortodoxo (Alexander, 1982). Pero, no obstante su negacion, hay pruebas claras de que la antigua separacion nitida entre los hechos y los valores, y la privilegiada vision del conocimiento cientifico como 'la' fuente de la verdad, sigue subsistiendo. Entre los investigadores del comportamiento sexual, como en otros de la ciencia, hay muchos a quienes se podrian llamar 'positivistas en recuperacion'. Dicen que rechazan el dogma positivista pero, al parecer, no se pueden alejar de los dogmas que comprende el positivismo. La razon para ello, en mi opinion, es la falta de conciencia adecuada de la nueva ciencia 'postpositivista' que cada vez influye mas en el trabajo cientifico (Alexander, 1982, 1990). Mi objetivo en este articulo es aclarar la naturaleza de la nueva concepcion postpositivista de la ciencia y mostrar que es pertinente para la investigacion sobre el comportamiento sexual. Considero que es una tarea muy importante, porque creo firmemente que es posible unificar a sexologos de variadas convicciones alrededor de este significado postpositivista de la ciencia. Mas aun, creo que este nuevo significado postpositivista de la ciencia le dara nuevas formas a la investigacion sobre el comportamiento sexual, de modo que la solucion de los problemas sexuales de nuestra sociedad se vuelva la meta principal de la comprension de la sexualidad desde un punto de vista cientifico".
