Lecture started with another prepared speech.
A body of knowledge or way of thinking.
Difference between pure and applied science? Sometimes science can be influenced by the scientist and the interpretations of words used. Falsifiable claims said to be scientific.

Lecture seems geared at creating good scientific claims. Telling us the motivations behind experiments. Sociologists and physicists playing pranks on each other by submitting bogus papers.

Assessing one's conscience when undertaking scientific work. Taking into account what is happening around them. Not disclosing information or findings that could be used for harm.

Whistle blower protection.
