Where the social, cultural or linguistic distance between the community and researchers from outside the community is significant, the potential for misunderstanding is likewise significant. Engagement between the community involved and researchers, initiated prior to recruiting participants and maintained over the course of the research, can enhance ethical practice and the quality of research. Taking time to establish a relationship can promote mutual trust and communication, identify mutually beneficial research goals, define appropriate research collaborations or partnerships, and ensure that the conduct of research adheres to the core principles of Respect for Persons, Concern for Welfare – which in this context includes welfare of the collective, as understood by all parties involved – and Justice.
Unlike the other major philosophical lights of his era, and despite having written more than any of them, Leibniz produced no magnum opus . He seemed most at home in dialogue, in correspondence, and in controversy. The Discourse on Metaphysics and Monadology are his most commonly studied works in metaphysics. Scholars disagree about the extent to which the two works are in accord, but they together provide a solid grounding in Leibniz’s thought. The Theodicy is a classic of philosophical theology and the New Essays provides the fullest account of Leibniz’s epistemology. This article will summarize Leibniz’s philosophy mainly as it is presented in these works. It would be a mistake, however, to think that one can get a full picture of Leibniz’s interests from these works and the reader is encouraged to consult the many excellent edited selections of Leibniz’s texts.
1) You give 1 anecdotal example, and in turn suggest that somehow that means the British have always been conservative? I remind you that it is almost a FULL CENTURY since the incident you mentioned and both medicine and medical sciences have made signficiant strides across all countries. Please provide some more recent examples
2) The whole point here is that this “medicine” offered in the US is not even in experimental stages… It has been tested in a different group of people but to date has not been experimented in the population with Charlie Gard’s mutation — hence there’s no evidence that it would actually work, unlike the insulin case you brought up.
