Abstract: The aim of this article is to show how the market triumphalism, denounced by Michael Sandel in his book What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets, has also reached the research activity. Researchers are now ruthlessly crushed by a global system for quantification of research and knowledge whose background is a pragmatic and mercantilist view of science, conceived and designed according to technocratic-scientometric standards. This situation requires resetting and academically rigorous rethinking the human sense of research conceived as a social practice provided with a telos or an end in itself. In order to meet this goal, this paper is divided into four parts. The first reflects on the human sense of research. The second performs a diagnosis of the state of research particularly in Colombia with particular reference to the social sciences and humanities, analyzing the specific case of law and philosophy. In the third part the ideological background underlying scientometric standards is exposed. Finally, the fourth part examines the role of universities to meet the challenge of returning to research its true meaning.
