Practicing Science: Virtues, Values, and the Good Life, 9-12 August 2018, London

Center for Theology, Science and Human Flourishing 11 days ago

Scientific practice throughout history has been linked with virtue. Philosophers from ancient Greece through the medieval period viewed the study of the natural world as a means to develop intellectual and moral virtues. While virtue language has largely disappeared from discussions of science, moral dispositions and judgments continue to play a significant role in scientific practice.

This conference is the culmination of a 3-year project at the University of Notre Dame, exploring the relationship between virtue and scientific practice with a focus on laboratory research in biology. Speakers include: Kristján Kristjánsson, Andrew Pinsent, Michael Spezio, Matthew Stanely, Anna Abram, Markus Christen, Fern Eldson Baker, Don Howard, Antje Jackelén, Gerald McKenny, Darcia Narvaez, and Michael Welker.

Registration Deadline: 1 July 2018. Register online now. For more information, visit the conference event page.
