Masking the Meaningful

When: Mar 04, 2015 at 12:00 PM
Where: Foster Auditorium, 102 Paterno Library

Electoral choices fail to correspond to the voters’ interests, and citizens cannot identify what is of most concern to them. Climate change is a striking example of this phenomenon. Professor Philip Kitcher, a leading voice in science and ethics issues, will discuss the relationships between the practices of science and of democracy that develop at these conflicting intersections. Kitcher’s talk, part of the Research Ethics Lecture Series, will engage the campus community in a broad discussion about the roles and responsibilities of those of us who are both scientists and citizens.
