AbstractThe article discusses the Schön case, in which a physicist was charged with 24 allegations of misconduct, and analyses the report of the official committee charged with the investigation. The author uses this case to show how daily scientific practices are fraught with cronic problems that have serious consequences for how practicing scientists assess their work in general, and scientific misconduct in particular. A philosophical approach is proposed that sees scientific method and scientific ethics as inextricably interwoven.
