Biology and Ethics (2018)

Bioogy and Ethics (Virtualbookworm: 2018). 350 pp.

Biology and Ethics provides a historian's perspective of the attempts to ground an ethics within a biological framework. Aside from its analysis of schools as social Darwinism, eugenics, and sociobiology, it attempts to evaluate their veracity from using cases as Japan's Unit 731, the Guatemala Syphilis study, and others. In spite of the much disputed claims of evolutionary psychology, it appears that the key to establishing ethical institutions and societies lies in the realm of public information.
