Dr. Scott Pratt, Professor of Philosophy and newly appointed Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of Oregon will present:
"Indigenous Ontology and the Ethics of Scientific Practice"
Abstract: In this paper I propose that if one begins with an indigenous ontology, one can “derive” an ethics that provides a framework for a great variety of human activities including scientific practice. I will first introduce an interpretation of an indigenous ontology drawn from a variety of North American Indian traditions. I will call this view (following suggestions from Vine Deloria, Jr.) an agent ontology. In the second part of my discussion I will consider what an agent ontology implies, that is, the relations it establishes and its connection to questions of ethics. In the third part of the discussion, I will propose that agent ontology implies four elements of an ethics of scientific practice that include storytelling, ceremony, the recognition of anomalies, and the constraints of place.
This event is sponsored by the Philosophy Department, Hawai'i Island Philosophy Club, UH Hilo Diversity Committee, and Student Activities Council
