Product description


“John Forge's book addresses-with clarity, insight, lively writing, and superb use of examples-the responsibilities of scientists for the outcomes of their research. Breaking new ground with his original analysis of responsibility, his analysis is philosophically rigorous and well informed and, at the same time, accessible to interested scientists and the general intellectual public.”
—Hugh Lacey, Swarthmore College

“Forge combines detailed and rigorous ethical argument with a sophisticated and informed knowledge of modern scientific practice and argues convincingly for an expanded account of the moral responsibility of scientists. Scientists are to be held responsible not just for what they do and for what will follow from their research, but for consequences that they should have known about or anticipated.”
—Michael R. Matthews, University of New South Wales

“Forge has provided extremely strong arguments for scientists to take responsibility for research . . .[advocates] a responsible, educated scientific community aware of its place in the world.”
