Agriculture's Ethical Horizon
Auteur : Zimdahl Robert L
Discussion of foundational values, of why we practice agriculture as we do, should become a central, rather than peripheral, part of agricultural practice and education. If agricultural scientists do not venture forth to understand and shape the ethical base of the future, it will be imposed by others. Largely autobiographical, this book covers topics such as scientific truth and myth, what agricultural research should be done, an introduction to ethics, moral confidence in agriculture, the relevance of ethics to agriculture, sustainability, and biotechnology.
- Written by an expert who has been engaged in agricultural education and research for over 35 years
- Content is easily understandable by non-philosophers
- The concepts of scientific truth and myth are contrasted and compared
- Chapter sidebars highlight important concepts and can be used to engage students in further discussion
