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.


In asking these questions; we may look to philosophical answers.

  1. Thank you, Sandra, for sharing these insights. The idea of people collectively moves the needle towards improving the world by asking ethical and worthy questions resonates with me.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Vanessa. I am passionate about equity in education, so ethics seemed a good place to start digging around! I am eager to hear our cohorts ideas and thoughts on how we can continue to be mindful of our various privileges to bring a greater sense of unity to our world through technology.
