dc.description.abstractWithin the discussion and research on the nature of knowledge lies the highly debated issue of the relationship between ethics and scientific knowledge. In this paper I try to problematize this relationship with the help of the Aristotelian concept of knowledge and ethics. This concept makes the distinction between scientific knowledge (episteme), productive knowledge (techne), and practical wisdom (phronesis). (Aristotle, nicomachean ethics, chapter 6, (2002) Oxford university press, introduction by Sarah Baoadie.)
