The subjective science, by L H Fredheim

Conservation is inherently values-based, intrinsically tied to culturally constructed, subjective heritage values in constant flux. However, conservation is not hopelessly adrift; the realization of the subjective nature of conservation allows conservators to actively engage with the development of heritage values and become managers of change. As specialists in both the arts and the sciences, conservators are entitled to opinions and would do society a service by making them heard.

Target audience

Conservators and other heritage professionals.
