"Science Fictions: Exposing Fraud, Bias, Negligence and Hype in Science:" Stuart J. Ritchie in conversation with Oliver Traldi
Café Culture North East presents "Science Fictions: Exposing Fraud, Bias, Negligence and Hype in Science:" Stuart J. Ritchie in conversation with Oliver Traldi. Part of our Café Scientifique programme.

So much relies on science. But what if science itself can’t be relied on? Beginning with some high-profile cases of fraud and dodgy statistics in psychology research, scientists have become increasingly aware that many peer-reviewed scientific studies aren’t up to scratch. This includes research that has influenced endless popular books, important economic policy, expensive educational interventions, and crucial medical treatments. These major problems – and what we should do about them – are the focus of Science Fictions, the new book by renowned psychologist Stuart Ritchie. In this event, Stuart will discuss these issues and more with writer and philosopher Oliver Traldi.

Stuart Ritchie is a psychologist and a Lecturer in the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King’s College London. His new book Science Fictions: Exposing Fraud, Bias, Negligence and Hype in Science was published in July. @StuartJRitchie

Oliver Traldi is a PhD student at Notre Dame University. His research interests include social epistemology and the relationship between epistemic norms for belief and other sorts of norms. More generally, he is fascinated by the nature of arguments (in both senses of the term): how to make them, how to evaluate them; how to resolve them, which ones are worth having. https://olivertraldi.weebly.com / @olivertraldi
