📙 Science And Virtue: An Essay on the Impact of the Scientific Mentality on Moral Character (Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Philosophy) (Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Philosophy) by Louis Caruana — download pdf


Charting new territory in the interface between science and ethics, "Science and Virtue" is a study of how the scientific mentality can affect the building of character, or the attainment of virtue by the individual. Drawing on inspiration from virtue-ethics and virtue-epistemology, Caruana argues that science is not just a system of knowledge but also an important factor determining a way of life. This book goes beyond the normal strategy evident in the science-ethics realm of examining specific ethical dilemmas posed by scientific innovations. Here Caruana deals with more fundamental issues, uncovering morally significant tendencies within the very core of the scientific mentality and explaining how science, its method, history and explanatory power can shape a conception of the good life.
