Last modified: May 29, 2017

In this short news article (Dutch language, 2016) the Dutch philosopher Bas Haring talks about the fictional movie On Being a Scientist, which he produced in collaboration with the director Joost van Ginkel. Haring explains that the movie aims to raise students’ awareness of research integrity and to prepare them for the problems and dilemma’s (the ‘dark side’ of science) they could encounter as scientists. He emphasizes that it does not provide clear-cut answers or step-by-step solutions but instead invites students to reflect and think for themselves. On Being a Scientist was funded by the Leiden University and is freely available on youtube.
