About the Author:

David B. Resnik is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Center for the Advancement of Ethics at the University of Wyoming.

Review:

For a long time those of us who try to explain science to students have needed a text that is both comprehensive and comprehensible and strikes our students as relevant to their own experience. David Resnik's The Ethics of Science meets these needs--and more. It helps us to understand how science works the way that it does and when it fails, why it fails.
.

–David L. Hull, Northwestern University

Science faculty and students--and an interested public--will find Ethics of Science admirably clear, balanced, and richly comprehensive . . .An extremely useful aspect of the book is that virtually every kind of ethical questions that arises in and about science is addressed
.

–Hans Oberdiek, Swarthmore College

David B. Resnik uses a wealth of actual and hypothetical examples in a clear philosophical discussion that illuminates the range of ethical concerns that scientists need to face. This is one area where philosophical argument can serve a practical need: the more scientists who think carefully about the issues Resnik raises, the better
.
–Peter Lipton, Cambridge University

Essential reading for all students and professionals in science and scientific research.
