Abstract: The objectivity of scientific truth is no longer a taken-for-granted concept. Rather, it has been rendered suspect, because there is doubt about both the possibility of  acquiring it and its intrinsic value. This article is an attempt to show the contrary. After describing three main reasons why the concept of  thk  objectivity of  scientific truth has been under fire lately, I suggest that the notion of  objectivity itself should be recast. The rejection of  objectivity actually arises from the misunderstanding that leads to the
conflation between objectivi~m  and objectivity The next part of the  artide tries to show that the objec&ity  of scientific truth, to a certain extent, can be attributed not only to natural sciences but also to social sciences, and that ethics can also give objective moral knowledge. Objectivity is a moral concept, before it is a methodological concept. Thus, objectivity is humanly valuable and should not be abandoned.

Keywords: Objektivitas, metode ilmiah, kebenaran, sains, etika.
