Reflections on Obligation, Professionalism and the 21st Century.
Van Patten, James J.
A moral order exists that imposes on human beings an obligation toward other human beings, both present and future. This obligation includes making sure that the environment is maintained in a way that will provide for the basic human needs of future generations; accepting the responsibilities of professionalism, including the maintenance of professional standards and of a commitment to the continued learning necessary for coping with a changing world; and assessing and managing scientific and technological developments carefully. Improving international communications requires all human beings on Earth to join in accepting these obligations. (Author/PGD)
