What are your perspectives on the following comment? “There is an ethical consideration related to knowledge production – namely, the failure to acknowledge uncertainty and complexity is not simply a technical error but also an ethical one. It is an ethical failure when we fail to take responsibility for our knowing. Ethics is not something that is supplementary to our understanding of the world. Ethics is always already part of what we do.”

Ariane: The ubiquity of ethics is undeniable. Yet, people make honest mistakes and technical errors.
