Ethics of Knowing
Kim, Mijung
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v10 n4 p1175-1181 Dec 2015
The gap between knowledge and action has become a critical concern in the discussion of participatory scientific literacy for citizenship where one's decision making and action are central to alleviate socioscientific and environmental challenges in the current society. With the emphasis of action, Hoeg, Lemelin, and Bencze suggest an activist approach to bring out the responsibility of knowledge through one's action. This article will further discuss the integrity of knowing and action based on Varela's immediate coping and Levinas' notion of hostage toward others.
