It will be a very special appointment, the one scheduled for tomorrow evening, as part of the philosophical review.”freedomIn fact, Kermes Misani will host a scholarly focus that sees the world as the protagonist Gianfranco Pacioni.
The basic requirement of those conducting research must not be affected: the researcher must be able to question the moral value of particular projects, and be free to collaborate and share data and analyzes with other researchers, regardless of any consideration of race, religion, or political belief. In scientific research, Pacioni asserts, there can be no freedom without responsibility: the act of the scientist has inevitable repercussions on society.
In his speech entitledDoing Science Today: Between Freedom, Competition, and Responsibility“, the scientist will explain how the relationship between freedom and responsibility is today severely threatened by fierce competition, by the excessive specialization of research activities of which few people have a comprehensive view of the problems, by the rapid increase in the number of researchers from countries with values and cultures different from the Our cultures, from the complex interweaving of public and private research.
We will highlight that the right relationship between science and society is essential for scientific research to continue to be the engine of human progress.
