Is there a role for morality in science? | Science & Technology - University of Miami

Barbara Gutierrez, Associate Director of Communications and Public Relations at University of Miami recommends, An upcoming symposium will explore how professionals in the science field can integrate moral questions into their research.

At a time in which our society is politically polarized and divided about a myriad of issues concerning governance, immigration, and national identity, some would argue the need for convincing moral knowledge and widely accepted understandings of decency and the common good has seldom been greater.

Can science shed some light on how we could become more whole as a society?

Blaine Fowers, professor of educational and psychological studies in the University of Miami School of Education and Human Development, believes science can. For the past 35 years, he has been integrating moral questions into his work in psychology and he has spoken with dozens of like-minded academics...

On Tuesday, April 16, Fowers will host the first of its kind “Moral Science Symposium,” to be held at the Shalala Student Center. The event is sponsored by the UM Ethics Programs, the School of Education and Human Development, the Office of Research, and the Department of Educational and Psychological Studies...

Kenneth W. Goodman, professor and director of the Miller School of Medicine Institute for Bioethics and Health Policy and director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre in Ethics and Global Health Policy, will present during the conference. He believes there is a way to integrate morality into the science world.
