    Book details


Bernard Rollin historically and conceptually examines the ideology that denies the relevance of ethics to science. Providing an introduction to basic ethical concepts, he discusses a variety of ethical issues relevant to science and how they are ignored, to the detriment of both science and society. These issues include research on human subjects, animal research, genetic engineering, biotechnology, cloning, xenotransplantation, and stem cell research. Rollin also explores the ideological agnosticism that scientists have displayed regarding subjective experience in humans and animals, and its pernicious effect on pain management.

'In this important book the author looks at historical and conceptual aspects of the ideology that denies the relevance of ethics to science. His conclusion is instructive...' The Scientific and Medical Network In Science and Ethics, Bernard Rollin historically and conceptually examines the ideology that denies the relevance of ethics to science. Providing an introduction to basic ethical concepts, he discusses a variety of ethical issues that are relevant to science and how they are ignored, to the detriment of both science and society. These issues include research on human subjects, animal research, genetic engineering, biotechnology, cloning, xenotransplantation, and stem cell research. In engaging prose and with philosophical sophistication, Rollin cogently argues in favor of making education in ethics part and parcel of scientific training.

Review Text

  • By Shaun J. on June 18, 2014

    I enjoyed this book. Rollin details ethical conundrums within the scientific community over the past few decades. This was a very enjoyable read. I admit, a few chapters seemed to drag on but he always managed to pull my interest back. I highly recommend this book for anyone studying any particular science field (and non scientists too I suppose).
