Ethical Challenges in the Behavioral and Brain Sciences : Case Studies and Commentaries Paperback / softback

Edited by Robert J. (Cornell University, New York) Sternberg, Susan T. (Princeton University, New Jersey) Fiske

Description

In recent years, a growing number of scientific careers have been brought down by scientists' failure to satisfactorily confront ethical challenges.

Scientists need to learn early on what constitutes acceptable ethical behavior in their professions.

Ethical Challenges in the Behavioral and Brain Sciences encourages readers to engage in discussions of the diverse ethical dilemmas encountered by behavioral and brain scientists - allowing scientists to reflect on ethical issues before potentially confronting them.

Each chapter is authored by a prominent scientist, who describes a dilemma, how it was resolved, and what the scientist would do differently if confronted with the situation again.

Featuring commentary throughout and a culmination of opinions and experiences shared by leaders in the field, the goal of this book is not to provide 'correct' answers to real-world ethical dilemmas.

Instead, authors pose the dilemmas, discuss their experiences and viewpoints on them, and speculate on alternative reactions to the issues.
