Literature Review: Ethics problem for Social Sciences

This “Ten Problems for Social Sciences in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. interculturalism,
  2. introspection,
  3. truth,
  4. authenticity,
  5. human enhancement,
  6. critical thinking,
  7. technocracy,
  8. privilege,
  9. ethics,
  10. higher education.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

CONCLUSIONS — The ethic dimension of the research is not separated from the methodologic dimension of each field of knowledge. The center of Weber’s philosophy of science is constituted by his methodological thoughts on ethical neutrality of the social sciences. Issues of justice and inequality are among the most compelling themes in spatial studies. The digitalization pathways for the legal profession are linked by one overall dominating concept: trust. A Norwegian project applied insights from Responsible Research and Innovation to the research and development of assistive technologies. The agency of the violent extremist woman is, for the most part, visually (re)constructed through or with a masculine gaze, as defiance, allure and/or coercion. The nexus of COVID-19 and climate change has so far brought attention to short-term greenhouse gas emissions reductions, public health responses and clean recovery stimulus packages. There is no published framework outlining how to systematically assess immunization programmatic factors. Media organizations have identified journalistic-societal sustainability problems for which they offer utility-and systems-level solutions through differentiated value propositions. The risk of exploitative research funded by resource-rich countries who conduct studies in Africa increased recently.
