Summary
Drawing on the recognition that science refers to various ways of knowing (among them the “soft” or social sciences), and that both “hard” and “applied” sciences may be included into the sphere of humanities (because they involve human situatedness), this article argues for the key ethical role that academic spaces of interdisciplinary learning can assume in the future of our societies. Accordingly, it examines the theoretical approaches, methodologies, and dissemination strategies of a Science-Art-Philosophy Laboratory recently created at the Center for the Philosophy of Science of FCUL. In recent decades techno-scientific innovation has generated astounding economic growth, leading to a mounting investment, both public and private, in the research and production of patents, and a corresponding decline of funding towards research and education in the fields of the humanities and social sciences. Although techno-science commands recognition because of its prodigious power of performance, it should not turn into a privileged area of knowledge dictating human progress. In effect, not only do the humanities and social sciences hold a pivotal role in assessing the ethical, social, and environmental problems that accelerated scientific advancement has tended to aggravate, but they also prove indispensable towards a dialogue on the future scenarios of human development.
