What Do Scientists Owe Society?

New Podcast!!!

We talk with Dr. Janet Stemwedel, Professor of Philosophy at San Jose State and Blogger for Scientific American about the obligations that scientists have to society.

Link to Janet's series of articles

~2:00 - How is a scientist?
~12:00 - Negative obligations (Don't be evil)
~14:00 -  Positive obligations (Do good!)
~34:00 - Fortnightly Scientist!


Some people want to define what it means to be a scientist a little too much. See what I mean in this blog post.
