SCI 125: Social Issues in Science, Technology and Health Sciences (Newton): Home

Welcome

Welcome to the Research Guide for Professor Newton's SCI 125.  Use this guide to find quality resources for your article reviews as well as your semester research project.  Please contact me or another research librarian at any of the BCC campus libraries if you have any questions.

The Nexus of Ethics and Science

Although science provides descriptive knowledge of the world, on its own it is not able to interpret the human meaning of this knowledge, nor to provide full guidance for distinguishing between proper and improper processes in the acquisition of knowledge. Likewise, technology and engineering provide increasingly powerful means, but tell us little about the ends to which they should be dedicated. Ethics, generally speaking, is concerned with identifying proper means and distinguishing good and bad ends."
