    Developing the Ethical Matrix as a Decision Support Framework: GM Fish as a Case Study. [REVIEW]Matthias Kaiser, Kate Millar, Erik Thorstensen & Sandy Tomkins - 2007 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 20 (1):65-80.
    The Ethical Matrix was developed to help decision-makers explore the ethical issues raised by agri-food biotechnologies. Over the decade since its inception the Ethical Matrix has been used by a number of organizations and the philosophical basis of the framework has been discussed and analyzed extensively. The role of tools such as the Ethical Matrix in public policy decision-making has received increasing attention. In order to further develop the methodological aspects of the Ethical Matrix method, work was carried out to (...)

    Assessing Fisheries – Using an Ethical Matrix in a Participatory Process.Matthias Kaiser & Ellen-Marie Forsberg - 2001 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 14 (2):191-200.
    The Norwegian National Committee for Research Ethics inScience and Technology (NENT), collaborating with The NorwegianFisherman''s Association and The Research Council of Norway,started in 1999 a project aiming at an ethical assessment of Norwegian fisheries for the year 2020. The project was to preparethe ground for ethical debate in and of the fishery sector inview of pending important decisions on long term strategies. Thispaper has its focus on the method used for achieving these aims,rather than the substantive results concerning the fisheries. (...)

    From Rocks to Graphs — the Shaping of Phenomena.Matthias Kaiser - 1991 - Synthese 89 (1):111 - 133.
    Assuming an essential difference between scientific data and phenomena, this paper argues for the view that we have to understand how empirical findings get transformed into scientific phenomena. The work of scientists is seen as largely consisting in constructing these phenomena which are then utilized in more abstract theories. It is claimed that these matters are of importance for discussions of theory choice and progress in science. A case study is presented as a starting point: paleomagnetism and the use of (...)

    Developing the Ethical Delphi.Kate Millar, Erik Thorstensen, Sandy Tomkins, Ben Mepham & Matthias Kaiser - 2007 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 20 (1):53-63.
    A number of EU institutions and government committees across Europe have expressed interest in developing methods and decision-support tools to facilitate consideration of the ethical dimensions of biotechnology assessment. As part of the work conducted in the EC supported project on ethical tools (Ethical Bio-TA Tools), a number of ethical frameworks with the potential to support the work of public policy decision-makers has been characterized and evaluated. One of these potential tools is the Delphi method. The Delphi method was originally (...)

  8. Fish-Farming and the Precautionary Principle: Context and Values in Environmental Science for Policy. [REVIEW]Matthias Kaiser - 1997 - Foundations of Science 2 (2):307-341.
    The paper starts with the assumption that the Precautionary Principle (PP) is one of the most important elements of the concept of sustainability. It is noted that PP has entered international treaties and national law. PP is widely referred to as a central principle of environmental policy. However, the precise content of PP remains largely unclear. In particular it seems unclear how PP relates to science. In section 2 of the paper a general overview of some historical and systematic features (...)

  9. Progress and Rationality: Laudan's Attempt to Divorce a Happy Couple.Matthias Kaiser - 1991 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 34 (4):433-455.
    The article raises objections to some fundamental assumptions of ?normative naturalism? as put forth by Larry Laudan. It contests the view that matters of rationality are strictly to be separated from matters of (normative) methodology and progress of knowledge. Thus a modified version of what Laudan calls the ?historicist's meta?methodology thesis? is suggested. In particular, it is argued that methodological rules should not initially be taken as elliptical for hypothetical means?end relations. Assuming that they are taken as such, it is (...)

    Consensus Conference on Environmental Values in Radiation Protection: A Report on Building Consensus Among Experts.Matthias Kaiser & Ellen-Marie Forsberg - 2002 - Science and Engineering Ethics 8 (4):593-602.
    During the fall of 2001 (October 22–25), The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA) and the Agricultural University of Norway arranged a consensus conference on the protection of the environment against ionising radiation. The motive for the conference was the need to study the ethical and philosophical basis for protection of nature in its own right. The conference was funded by Nordic Nuclear Safety Research (NKS), in cooperation with the International Union of Radioecology (IUR). The National Committee for Research Ethics in (...)

    Philosophers Adrift? Comments on the Alleged Disunity of Method.Matthias Kaiser - 1993 - Philosophy of Science 60 (3):500-512.
    R. Laudan and L. Laudan (1989) have put forth a new model intended to solve the problem of disagreement, the problem of consensus, and the problem of innovation in science. In support of this model they cite the history of the acceptance of continental drift, or plate tectonics. In this discussion, I claim that this episode does not constitute an instance of their model. The historical evidence does not support this model. Indeed, closer examination seems to weaken it. I also (...)

    Uncertainty and Precaution 2: The Precautionary Principle and its Relevance to Science.Matthias Kaiser - 2004 - Global Bioethics 17 (1):81-92.
    After Second World War public and political decision makers wished to correct the apparent negative consequences of science and technology. This resulted in a call for ethical responsibility in science and technology and a new generation of environmental regimes aimed at controlling or managing the consequences of human interaction with the environment. The claim of this paper is that the Precautionary Principle can be understood as a combination of these trends. The Precautionary Principle is presented and discussed in detail. In (...)

    Practical Ethics in Search of a Toolbox: Discourse Ethics and Ethical Committees.Matthias Kaiser - 2004 - Global Bioethics 17 (1):137-148.
    In this paper the claim is made that the new turn to ethics brings about a need to develop a toolbox for practical ethics that makes ethical advice amenable to quality assurance and democratic transparency. This is of great importance when ethical advice is given to policy-making bodies. The mechanism of providing ethical advice through the establishment of an ethics committee is discussed. An analysis of what would follow from conceiving of the work of such a committee as an exercise (...)

    Uncertainty and Precaution 1: Certainty and Uncertainty in Science.Matthias Kaiser - 2004 - Global Bioethics 17 (1):71-80.
    In the traditional conception of science one assumes that science produces results which are certain and precise. It is argued that this picture is flawed and needs to be replaced with a view where uncertainty and imprecision are an integral part of the scientific enterprise. Uncertainty is still poorly understood by many practising scientists. However, several developments in science indicate that some epistemological uncertainty, e.g. due to processes of abstraction and idealization, will always follow advances in scientific knowledge. There are (...)
