Science, Art and Neuroethics
Transdisciplinary Collaborations to Foster Public Engagement
Research in the field of neurotechnology raises ethical and societal questions and thus represents a particular challenge for public engagement efforts. How should formats of public outreach be shaped to encourage public reflection on science? How can the one-way nature of communication between the expert and lay people be overcome?
The anthology introduces a special concept of public outreach relying on participatory events that create a productive overlap of the fields of science and art. The contributors from various disciplines discuss the relationship of both spheres, present current science/art initiatives and locate this transdisciplinary approach within the debate on public engagement theories and higher education policy specifications.
