MIMESIS AND UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH: RETHINKING HOW RESEARCHER MORALITY IS FORMED IN TIMES OF HIGH REGULATION
Keywords:Mimesis, Regulation of research, Undergraduate Scientific Research, Social Sciences and Humanities, Research ethics
Research ethics has been the object of an intense movement of regulation of research based on a preconceived model, under the logic of biomedical sciences. In this context of a mostly normative answer to the moral question, this article aims to offer arguments about the potential of forming morality through research practice. For this, it combines theoretical research, centered on the concepts of mimesis developed by Adorno and Benjamin, with the analysis of responses to an online questionnaire offered by undergraduate students in the humanities and social sciences with experience in undergraduate scientific research (USR). The formative potential of USR is affirmed, as it is a privileged instance for the analysis of mimetic behavior, allowing the learning of beginners through observation and the practical application of concepts from the moral field to research.
