Format: Paperback
Paul Kurtz, Editor & David Koepsell's SCIENCE AND ETHICS: CAN SCIENCE HELP US MAKE WISE MORAL JUDGMENTS? is a survey that blends scientific ideas with ethnical and moral investigation, offering up a collection of essays by some thirty contributors who range from scientists and philosophers. Chapters perfect for college-level collections strong in either science or philosophy probe such issues as research ethics, applications of technological and medical advancements, and social issues ranging from racism to criminal management.

If you are a social humanist, this is the book for you. If you are an intelligent person who enjoys seeing all sides if an issue, this may or may not be the book for you. If you like to be patronized, you will adore this book. I mean, who didn't love a collection of academics in love with themselves telling them how to think? I know that's why I went to college.

I used this book for my philosophy of science class and it proved to be a challenging text both philosophically but it too challenged my knowledge and ability to read scientific articles. I definitely recommend!
