Social Implications of Biological Education.
Grobman, Arnold B.
Political and social implications of biological research, with particular reference to consequences for education, are discussed in this collection of papers presented at the 1969 convention of the National Association of Biology Teachers. Commentary papers by a panel of three, including at least one high school biology teacher and one expert in the same field as the major speaker are included for each symposium paper. Edited versions of the general discussion following each topic are also included. The topics discussed by the panels were "Social Implications of Medicine,""Ethics and Behaviorism,""Genetics and Genetic Manipulations," and "Can Teachers Tell the Truth About Population." A copy of the banquet address "Evolution: The Reluctant Revolution," which was not discussed by panelists or audience, is also included. (AL)
