THREE TYPES OF MORAL DILEMMAS IN THE SCIENTISTS’ WORLD

The author is concerned with moral dilemmas faced by scientists. Scientists participating in the game for scientific truth discover many roles (explorer, debater, pedagogue) and get entangled in many social, political and economic contexts. The author analyses the origins of moral dilemmas, its forms and methods of solving them. He concentrates on negative factors. The author says: “The explorers of our contemporary civilization not only live and work in a world full of moral dilemmas, but also face factors that corrupt scientists’ character and intellect. In consequence many deviations arise: the desire for goods and privileges, the indifference to the status of scientific truth and fairness, cowardice, etc.”
