Speaker: Brian D. Earp (Departments of Philosophy and Psychology, Yale University; Associate Director, Yale-Hastings Program in Ethics & Health Policy; Research Fellow, Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, University of Oxford)

 

There has been a lot of heated discussion in recent years about a "reproducibility crisis" in science. How did it come about? Is there really a crisis? If there is, what can we do to resolve it? In this talk I will give a philosophical overview of some key puzzles in evaluating the trustworthiness of published studies, and explore the ethical obligations of researchers -- individually and collectively -- in producing trustworthy science of their own.
