Replication Crisis?

Hosted by the Forum for Philosophy

Old Theatre, Old Building

Speakers

Professor Alexander Bird

Dr Laura Fortunato

Professor Marcus Munafò

Chair

Dr Jonathan Birch

The hallmark of good science is often supposed to be experiments that produce the same results when repeated. But over the last number of years, scientists have replicated a number of established, high-profile experiments and produced different results. Does it point to serious flaws and biases in the sciences? Or is it evidence of the power of science to self-correct? And what can be done to make science more replicable? We explore whether the replication crisis undermines our trust in science.

Alexander Bird is Peter Sowerby Professor of Philosophy and Medicine, KCL.

Laura Fortunato is Associate Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Oxford.

Marcus Munafò is Professor of Biological Psychology, University of Bristol.

Jonathan Birch is a Fellow at the Forum for Philosophy and Associate Professor of Philosophy, LSE.
