This session on the scientific community will reflect the relation between integrity and misbehaviour, on the one hand, and sanity and madness, on the other. We will consider exemplars or prototypes of actors in academia such as the luminary, the whistleblower, the career zombie, the altruist and the saint. Can integrity, considered as a quality of the person, act as a means of developing a stable and resilient self-image and of achieving self-respect?
