Empirical Research and Bioethics, 2015

What counts as empirical evidence in bioethics? Differently from epidemiology or social sciences, bioethics is more argumentative than demonstrative, more normative than explanatory. Saying that, I am suggesting some parameters for the field: we need strong concepts, yet pieces of data. My provocative argument is that we should not import the epistemic criteria of what counts as data from epidemiology or social sciences to evaluate a contribution as relevant to bioethics. An ethical argument is more important than a long deep description of data.
