Brief description of the Centre/Research Group
The FiloLab Unit of Excellence studies the current validity and scope of notions such as truth, values or rationality in the field of public debate. In light of this analysis, it intends to propose methodological strategies to improve the quality of public debate, and to examine the suitability of such proposals through the study of specific public debates of special importance. The Unit is structured around Philosophy, but has a marked transdisciplinary vocation. The study of public debate and controversies is based on the recognition of the field's interdisciplinarity, since this subject has been researched in various academic disciplines: epistemology, argumentation theory, law, applied ethics, linguistics, cognitive science, philosophy of the mind, philosophy of language, political theory, etc. As a research unit, FiloLab aspires to an interdisciplinary practice in which each of these disciplinary discourses incorporate the contributions of the others. The ultimate goal is the articulation of a coherent and systematic transdisciplinary framework, capable of generating a theoretical corpus integrating methods and discourses from diverse fields.
Clinical and Global bioethics. Empirical and analytical approaches.
Social Sciences and Humanities (SOC) and Life Sciences (LIFE)
