Program on Public Conceptions of Science, Newsletter 8. The Ethical and Human Value Implications of Science and Technology: A Preliminary Directory Reviewing Contemporary Activity.
Blanpied, William A., Ed.; Holton, Gerald, Ed.
This is a preliminary resource guide which serves as a directory to current activity in the ethical and human value implications of science and technology. The first section of the guide lists groups active in this area (primarily in the United States), compiled from responses to a letter. Part 2 provides a short list of 20th century classics about the ethical and human value of implications of science and technology. Part 3 of the newsletter presents a selected bibliography of recent works in this area divided as to subject emphasis, and includes an author index. Finally, the last section deals with subjective impressions regarding contemporary concerns and trends. (BR)
