Modern Science and Human Values
This is a thought-provoking discussion of the various ways in which science, technology, and medicine influence social philosophies and choices. Lowrance argues that society would be better served by the extension of experts' technical stewardship beyond the narrowly defined concepts of responsibility. He cites case studies from genetic research, nuclear reactor safety assessment, and other areas to support his view.
