Why Should Anyone Become a Scientist? The Ideal of Science and Its Importance.
Li, Lewyn
Journal of Chemical Education, v76 n1 p20-21 Jan 1999
Argues that science as practice embodies the ideal of human intellect understanding the order underlying Nature. Maintains that science should be the disinterested, objective, and cooperative search for the truth, whereas personal prejudice, vanity, and ambition take second place. Proposes that discussion of the purpose of, and ethics in, science should be a part of graduate training in science. (WRM)
