Practicing Science: Virtues, Values, and the Good Life


The Center for Theology, Science, and Human Flourishing at the University of Notre Dame cordially invites you to an interdisciplinary conference:

Practicing Science: Virtues, Values, and the Good Life

August 9-12, 2018

University of Notre Dame (U.S.A.) in England
1-4 Suffolk Street
London, SW1Y 4HG

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
