Scientific research as a human activity

The “Istituto di Filosofia dell’Agire Scientifico e Tecnologico” (FAST) (literally Institute of Philosophy of Scientific and Technological Practice) was established in 2008 by the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome to promote the principles contained in the University’s Charter of the aims. This body coordinates the University’s Educational and Research activities in the following fields: Anthropology, General Ethics, Professional Ethics, General Bioethics, Clinical Bioethics, Moral Philosophy, Logic and Philosophy of Science, Forensic Medicine, History of Medicine, History of Science and Technology, Social Psychology, Philosophy of Law and Social Medicine.

FAST’s education and research are conducted via interdisciplinary work carried out both within the confines of the Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome and in collaboration with other Institutions, with the scope of creating a dialogue between philosophers, researchers and teachers of the various scientific disciplines.
