Abstract

The philosophical reflection stemming from actual scientific practice has been proven to have the potential to inform ethical thinking and political practice with a more robust foundation than those not necessarily linked to scientific developments. This is not, of course, to argue for an alleged preeminence of science over speculative philosophical reflection, nor that scientific practices should remain untouched by science-informed philosophy. On the contrary, history and anthropology of science function as antidotes to similar unfounded views. Recent scientific and technological discoveries require a stronger role for philosophy in public and institutional discussions. Their practical consequences for humans and non-humans cannot be ignored.
