Julie Zahle

I am a philosopher specialized in the philosophy of the social sciences (and the humanities). My main areas of research are: values in science, the individualism/holism debate, qualitative methods, research ethics, social theories of practice, the philosophy of anthropology and sociology, and the role of science in society.

Since 2017, I have been a research fellow at Department of Philosophy, University of Bergen, where I am conducting a research project on values and objectivity in qualitative data collection in the social sciences.
