Responsibility and uncertainty: new perspectives upon responsible action

Maria Antonietta Foddai, professor of the philosophy of law in the faculty of law at the University of Sassari offers a rich reflection on the modern concept of responsibility, offering a new approach to the problem: the construction of responsibility must derive from within a social common project. The new subject of responsibility therefore becomes an "us" that shares responsible action. Nicole Lozzi met her on behalf of the Bassetti Foundation. - More More

Science and Governance: the provocation of responsibility.

Conversation with Mariachiara Tallacchini. "Within the cultural horizons of the European Commission the STS point of view was missing; no report had ever used the science and technology studies perspective. Nicole Dewandre who was in charge of Science and Governance within the Directorate General for Research, was given the mandate to commission an expert group coordinated by Brian Wynne, which could be the European and international expression of this approach. [...] Our thesis is that the public fear of science is not produced by a deficit of knowledge, but by the doubts that the citizens feel in relation to the institutions themselves..." - More More
