A “professional issues” course: Grounding philosophy in workplace realities

In N. Sanitt (ed.), Motivating Science: Science Communication from a Philosophical, Educational and Cultural Perspective. Pantaneto Press (2005)
Some courses achieve existence, some have existence thrust upon them. It is normally a struggle to create in a scientific academic community a course on the philosophical or social aspects of science, but just occasionally a confluence of outside circumstances causes one to exist, irrespective of the wishes of the scientists. It is an opportunity, and taking advantage of it requires a slightly different approach from what is appropriate to the normal course of events, where a “social” course needs a fight to establish it, and faces a struggle for more than marginal existence.
