New course offering in Ethics for the Sciences
PHIL 337 is intended for students across disciplines but will particularly appeal to those in the social and natural sciences.
The course will provide a general introduction to ethics issues that are raised by the (non-medical) social and natural sciences. It is organized around three central questions:
- what counts as “responsible conduct of research” (RCR)?
- who is accountable for the social and environmental impacts of research?
- what role do social values play in scientific practice?
