Expanding philosophy of science into the moral domain: Response to brown and Kourany

Philosophy of Science 75 (5):779-785 (2008)
Janet Kourany argues that philosophers of science should place more emphasis on the moral and political aspects of scientific research. As a possible site for philosophical intervention she discusses professional codes of ethics. James Brown describes various systemic problems in pharmaceutical research and proposes that socializing medical research is the best way to remedy the situation. I criticize each of their examples, but concur with many overall aspects of their expanded agenda for philosophy of science. †To contact the author, please write to: Department of History and Philosophy of Science, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405; e‐mail: koertge@indiana.edu.
