Symposium / Seminar

International workshop "The Replicability Crisis? Philosophical, Legal and Social Perspectives"

From October 15, 2020 to October 16, 2020

Replicability is traditionally considered the hallmark of good science. However, in some cases important published scientific findings have failed to replicate. What does this say about scientific practices? What are the causes and significance of this “replicability crisis”? And how should scientific communities, scientific institutions, policy makers and the general public react to it?

The results of good science are supposed to be true everywhere and at any time: replicability is traditionally considered a ground of the epistemic authority of modern science. However, in some cases (especially in biomedical, social and psychological studies), important published scientific findings have failed to replicate. What does this say about scientific practices? What are the causes and significance of this “replicability crisis”? And how should scientific communities, scientific institutions, policy makers and the general public react to it?

The workshop will explore these multifaceted issues by combining philosophical, sociological and legal perspectives.
