The Perfect Storm--Genetic Engineering, Science, and Ethics
Rollin, Bernard E.
Science & Education, v23 n2 p509-517 Feb 2014
Uncertainty about ethics has been a major factor in societal rejection of biotechnology. Six factors help create a societal "perfect storm" regarding ethics and biotechnology: Social demand for ethical discussion; societal scientific illiteracy; poor social understanding of ethics; a "Gresham's Law for Ethics;" Scientific Ideology; vested interests dominating ethical discussion. How this can be remedied is discussed.
