How to press for an investigation of a suicide in an unethical clinical trial

I am looking for some advice. Two and half years ago I wrote an article for Mother Jones about a research scandal at the University of Minnesota, where I work. The short version: a mentally ill young man was coerced into a dubious pharmaceutical industry-sponsored antipsychotic trial over the objections of his mother; she tried for months to get him out of the trial, warning that he was going to kill himself; her warnings were ignored; he committed suicide. The university claims no fault, and…See More

Hi, Carl!

Thanks for joining the Public Philosophy Network (PPN)!  An introductory User Guide can be found under the “About” tab. We hope that you find ways to make the site helpful and supportive of your work and interests. While we welcome all members interested in public philosophy, the particular aim of this site is to help develop and support collaborative projects that include philosophers as partners in research and/or social action projects that in some way contribute a public good and/or further public discussion and deliberation. 

As we build up the site, we are counting on our members to help us make it a success. We strongly encourage you to upload a photo on your profile page and to complete your profile so that other members with similar interests can network with you. Having a robust and fairly accessible profile allows you to use this site to find other philosophers and collaborators for publicly engaged philosophy projects. It is also very helpful to add searchable keywords in the interest section of your profile so that others with similar philosophical interests can easily find you.

There are two ways to become actively involved on the PPN on-line network:  1) The affinity groups provide members with the opportunity to collaborate around a particular issue within public philosophy; 2) The general forums on the main page are intended to foster “metadiscussions” on issues in public philosophy that cut across specific issues—these discussions may focus on practical or philosophical concerns. If your interests aren’t yet represented, you can also start an affinity group or add a thread to a general discussion forum.

Thanks again for joining the network! We look forward to your participation!
