Proceedings Title

Ethical Issues in Science Communication: A Theory-Based Approach

Description

In the context of a specific understanding of ethics and communication, we discuss what seems central today for the interplay of science and society, the question of expertise. That notion is briefly presented and we then underscore some major issues that the prevalence of expertise in our society raise in the practice of hybrid forums, among which come first conditions of mutual understandability between citizens and experts.
