The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk’s April 2017 Lecture, with Professor Heather Douglas.

Professor Douglas, a philosopher of science who focuses on the proper understanding of science given its important role in public policy, argues that the responsibility to think through the risks that come with knowledge production can never be fully removed from the experts doing that work, even if such responsibility can (and in many cases should) be shared.

This event was part of the Hauser-Raspe Visiting Expert Programme.
