Been pondering a bit about ethics in science. Not sure where to post about it. It doesn’t seem to qualify for philosophy nor is it social science. It’s just how science should be conducted. But if it has to be moved elsewhere, sure go ahead. Basically we have of course the (Popperian type) sciencific method about falsification and the ethical basic requirement to be strictly objective, unbiased. For this the cargo cult lecture of Richard Feynman should be mandatory reading and rereading every year in all schools. Two quotes: Now Popper and Feynman's cargo cult should lead to this types of studies. Hey, anybody ever seen a study like that? I think I once did, but only once and I read hundreds. Would you believe to see real science in action here? I sure would. Obviously the authors decided that their ego's (and fooling them) were less important than the progress of science. It must be even harder to publish something like this: If you happened to find that, are you going to publish it? If you did, you sure would be very high in my personal hall of fame of real scientific scientists. More later.
