Science, Technology & Human Values, v5 n29 Fall 1979
This issue features three articles which represent social and ethical concerns effecting all world citizens. The first article explores various aspects of world problems that exemplify a recurrent pattern in disputes surrounding the introduction of technological innovations and developments in Western society. The second article focuses on a specific case study in the social confrontation of science, technology, and values. The third article cites results of an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) survey in which members of scientific societies were asked questions to determine the extent of scientific societies' activities related to issues of scientific freedom and responsibility, the characteristics of societies associated with such activities, and the societies' responses to a 1975 AAAS committee report on scientific freedom and responsibility. Many news items are presented. A literature review section and meeting report are also included. An extensive bibliography and a calendar listing coming events through September 1980 are presented.
