Shame Guilt bioethics dispute Minnisota…

Shame versus guilt in community responses to wrongdoing.

By Janet D. Stemwedel | April 25, 2013

Yesterday, on the Hastings Center Bioethics Forum, Carl Elliott pondered the question of why apetition asking the governor of Minnesota to investigate ethically problematic research at the University of Minnesota has gathered hundreds of signatures from scholars in bioethics, clinical research, medical humanities, and related disciplines — but only a handful of signatures from scholars and researchers at the University of Minnesota.

At the center of the research scandal is the death of Dan Markingson, who was a human subject in a clinical trial of psychiatric drugs. Detailed background on the case can be found here, and Judy Stone has blogged extensively about the ethical dimensions of the case.

Elliott writes:(SCIAM)


Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.-Ralph Waldo Emerson
