Commentary 1. ‘Telling the truth about genomics’: Hype and hope

Paula Boddington
Online erschienen: 19.06.2006 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/CAM.2006.009


Ruth Chadwick's piece covers a great deal of thought-provoking ground. She considers that one reason why genomics science has attracted much interest in public engagement is because of its relations to Kant's three basic questions of philosophy: What can I know? What ought I do? What may I hope? With the last question especially, Chadwick argues that there is a potentially large role for public engagement, and suggests that genomics science might develop its own distinct service ideal, springing from a conception of the good that is internal to it.
