Trust in expert knowledge in medicine and Technoscience: A meeting with Silvia Camporesi [19]

Incontro con Silvia Camporesi

February 2017

Within the context of the complex relationship between innovation and its various social actors, the concept of responsibility is underpinned by trust in expert knowledge. This said, it is plain to see that in recent years there has been a flux in this trust, a crisis that poses ethical, epistemological and political questions. In a lively seminar held at the Foundation in Milan, Silvia Camporesi Lecturer in Bioethics & Society in the Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine at King's College London and Director of the Bioethics & Society Master's programme, King's College London presented the results and some thoughts on the "Investigating Trust in Expert knowledge" International symposium, coordinated by Camporesi herself and resulting in a special issue of the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry. The post offers access to all of the materials. >>> [20]
