Ethics in Science and Technology


Dear Colleagues,

The journal Scientia et Fides (ISSN: 2300-7648; E-ISSN: 2353-5636) is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Ethics in Science and Technology", edited by Prof. Rubén Herce (Group of research CRYF on Science, Faith and Reason. Ecclesiastical School of Philosophy, University of Navarra):

 Technoscientific development has enabled humanity to achieve a knowledge of Nature that not only amazes scientists but also raises questions that Science cannot answer satisfactorily. These include ethical or moral issues. To what extent is it permissible to apply a certain technique? Should a government regulate scientific activity? Can a religion provide criteria for discerning good from evil in technical matters? Are the criteria of right and wrong enough to determine the way a scientist should act? Who is entitled, if anyone, to regulate a certain scientific activity? Should citizens have a voice in ethical debates on scientific activity or are the scientific committees enough?

We invite papers that address these questions and related issues, including but not limited to the former ones.

 Papers are accepted in the following languages: English, Spanish, Polish, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese; and should be submitted, after registration, to Scientia et Fides:


For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The submission deadline is 1 June 2018. Please, share with your peers!

Rubén Herce, Ph.D. Assistant Editor
