To Research or Not to Research: What is the Question?
Research is innately a human quest. We seek answers, and we aim to explain the world around us. We must remember egalitarian principles that are; all people deserve to be treated equally (Arneson, 2013). We should also look at utilitarianism; the greatest good for the highest number of people, if we aim to improve our world (Dulgnan, 1999).
When human philosophy and scientific research find each other; we can move toward helpful, ethical and worthy questions to drive our curiosity. We can create good research questions.
