Tamás Demeter has been awarded a MTA Lendület grant for the project "Morals and values in modern science". The grant will support the work of his research group for the next five years. Dr. Demeter’s research group will investigate (from historical, philosophical and sociological perspectives) the values in the background of scientific research, orienting, limiting and justifying it in various ways. Members of the research group will focus on case studies about the often unreflected and thereby rationally uncontrolled cognitive, moral, social and aesthetic values that characterize the history of modern science between the 17th and the 20th centuries.
