(p.139) 13 New Awareness Of A Scientist’s Responsibility
The Mental Aftermath


Oxford University Press

The political encouragements in the Physikalische Blätter reflected the budding awareness among German scientists of their social responsibility. This awareness is specifically articulated in the revised statutes of the German Physical Society (DPG). It later bore fruit in the — perhaps apologetically motivated — Mainau and G öttingen manifestos for responsible nuclear armaments policy. The popularization of science was seen as an effective antidote to socially blind over-specialization in science.

Keywords:   social responsibility, Mainau manifesto, nuclear armaments policy, popularization of science, over-specialization in science
