Ethics and values associated with agricultural biotechnology

, : Ethics and values associated with agricultural biotechnology. Agricultural biotechnology: issues and choices: 121-137

Biological and physical scientists ordinarily have philosophic and methodological orientations that put investigation of ethical issues and questions beyond the realm of objective research. However, ethics, which is particularly concerned with procedures or rules for converting both value and value-free knowledge into prescriptions about "what ought or ought not to be done", has an important role to play in our public choices and private decisions about agricultural biotechnology.
