The Reliability of Evidence in Science and the Law

Description
2013-2014 Working Group: The Reliability of Evidence in Science and the Law

The Reliability of Evidence in Science and the Law

The object of this series of workshops is to formulate a clear set of markers governing the reliability of evidence in the life sciences. The notion of evidence is a staple in epistemology and the philosophy of science; the notion of this group will be the way the notion of "evidence" is understood in scientific contexts, especially in the life sciences, and in judicial form as something that ensures the objectivity of scientific results and the institutions that produce these results.
