Values and objectivity in science : the current controversy about transgenic crops by Hugh Lacey( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Values and Objectivity in Science illuminates many of the ethical issues that arise concerning scientific practices and applications, offering an account of how social and ethical values play important roles within science. Hugh Lacey develops and clarifies his previous analysis by arguing for the importance of research being conducted under a plurality of strategies, contrasting "materialist strategies" with "agro-ecological strategies." By displaying the structure of current ethical controversies about the legitimacy of planting transgenic crops, this book illustrates that sound thinking on such issues must be grounded on an adequate philosophy of science, one that can clearly distinguish between the proper and the distorting roles of values in scientific practices. This book will prove useful for science students and practitioners as well as those interested in the growing ethical questions involved in scientific practices

As sementes e o conhecimento que elas incorporam by Hugh Lacey( )

1 edition published in 2000 in Portuguese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Frequentemente recorre-se a ciencia para legitimar a prioridade atribuida ao desenvolvimento de sementes transgenicas na pesquisa agronomica, e a protecao privilegiada concedida aos direitos de propriedade intelectual sobre tais sementes. Alega-se que as sementes transgenicas incorporam conhecimento cientifico, mas nao as sementes selecionadas na agricultura tradicional; e que o conhecimento cientifico sustenta nao haver, alem da agricultura que faz uso substancial de sementes transgenicas, maneira alternativa nenhuma de alimentar a humanidade. Ambas as alegacoes sao questionadas por meio de um argumento que reconhece na agroecologia uma seria alternativa (pelo menos parcialmente) a predominancia da biotecnologia na agricultura, uma alternativa que nao apenas encontra forte apoio na evidencia empirica, mas tambem responde aos valores da sustentabilidade ecologica e da justica social.

Existe uma distinção relevante entre valores cognitivos e sociais? by Hugh Lacey( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in Portuguese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

É útil trabalhar com um modelo das práticas de pesquisa científica segundo o qual existem três momentos-chave nos quais é preciso fazer escolhas, a saber, os momentos de: (i) adotar uma estratégia (ou regras metodológicas), (ii) aceitar teorias e (iii) aplicar o conhecimento científico. Os valores sociais podem ter papéis legítimos e importantes no primeiro e no terceiro momentos, porém não no segundo, quando apenas os valores cognitivos e os dados empíricos disponíveis têm papéis essenciais. A distinção entre valores cognitivos e valores sociais é necessária para sustentar este modelo e, portanto, para apoiar a visão de que o conhecimento científico imparcial pode ser o resultado de um processo influenciado por valores sociais, e também para indicar como a pesquisa deve ser conduzida de modo que o ideal de neutralidade seja sustentado mais plenamente. A maior parte deste artigo se dedica a explicar em detalhe como a distinção deve ser traçada
