Astonishing Advances in Science


We are in the midst of making astonishing advances in science. The advances have already brought new products, including genetically-modified crops, stem cells and novel medicines, to name just a few. Use of these products has also caused unsettling changes and raised ethical issues that we must face as a society for the first time. This course will provide students with knowledge about the history of science, its methods, and the economic, ethical, and legal impacts of the products.
