EuChemS Course “Good Chemistry – Methodological, Ethical, and Social Implications” by Dr. Jan Mehlich
Chemistry – or science in general – does not exist in a vacuum. Everything what chemists – the target audience for this course, albeit all other disciplines are welcomed – do, takes place in a larger societal context, and it may strongly affect it. This is why it is important to do not only chemistry – but good chemistry.
The content of this course, taught by EuChemS Award for Service winner Dr Jan Mehlich is strongly related to daily research activites: Science conduct, logic and theory of science, experimentation, writing publications, dealing with uncertainty, social impact of scientific activity. Using the concept of “applied ethics”, the course focuses on the fundamentals in philosophy of science and research ethics to the particular conduct of science and its internal and external domains of responsibility. By doing so, the course aims to sharpen and solidify the students’ awareness for the theory of research practice, their knowledge of ethics and their ability to exploit ethical thinking for the application in the social sphere science and technology as a field of human activity that impacts the quality of life of people all over the planet. We consider all this through a wide range of distinct categories – each lecture focuses on a specific area.
