About this title


Gene Technology and Social Acceptance uses gene technology to illustrate the complex issues that arise when a new technology appears in society. The authors examine the economic, legislative, environmental, social, ethical and philosophical issues that accompany a new technology that brings new knowledge and requires new skills that displace old ways of thinking and acting. This creates a paradigm shift that brings a new structure to society, bringing new laws, values, economic alliances, and new social dilemmas. The authors suggest ways of achieving social acceptance of gene technology and other new technologies. They devise methods of applying critical analysis to understand the motivation of those affected so that the decision-making process of those in society can be understood. Thus, those introducing the technology can reassess their values, reconsider the distribution of resources, and set new priorities.
