Tagung Gatekeeping in Science

24.-25. April, Dekanatssitzungssaal, Karl-Rahner-Platz 1

Organizers: Katherine Dormandy, Federica Malfatti

 An international group of philosophers and psychologists will explore the topic of “gatekeeping” in science. Two ranges of questions will be addressed. First: who is entitled to decide when a claim counts as scientific? Who gets to decide which specific methods should be banned or allowed in science, and which results should count as acceptable or unacceptable? On what basis do or should such decisions be made? Second: how are scientific results best communicated to the public? What does good or effective science communication look like?
