CC1 - A French language text trade paperback book in very good condition. A tight, clean, sound copy with minor overall shelf wear with some light creasing on the spine, some creasing on the front cover at the bottom right corner, and a small dent on the back cover at the top left corner. Depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale, la nécessité est apparue d'une réflexion collective sur l'éthique des sciences. En 1955, le manifeste Russell-Einstein donna naissance au mouvement Pugwash, dont les << Conférences sur la science et les affaires mondiales >> ont voulu être << la conscience morale des scientifiques >>. Elles ont constitué un forum régulier, tolérant, ouvert aux savants et aux citoyens concernés, et contribué à écarter le spectre de l'apocalypse nucléaire. Elles ont bien mérité leur prix Nobel de la paix (1995). De nos jours, l'éthique des sciences, c'est d'abord la bioéthique. Les progrès de la médecine et de la biologie offrent une capacité croissante de manipulation du vivant. Le corps peut être démembré, traité comme un matériau. Le génie génétique se révèle capable de fabriquer un vivant, quasiment à façon. Aucune barrière technique ne protège plus l'intimité du corps et la dignité de la personne humaine. Il est devenu urgent de maîtriser le savoir en édifiant des bornes juridiques ou éthiques. D'autres préoccupations sous-tendent le mouvement éthique dans les sciences, qui concernent la déontologie du chercheur. Des cas d'inconduite pendables (fraude, plagiat) ont donné l'alarme quant à la possible détérioration des normes de la profession. Ils ont aussi attiré l'attention sur des << pratiques douteuses >>. Comme la plupart des grands pays, la France a mis en place divers comités d'éthique. Quel doit être leur rôle aujourd'hui? Plus concrétement comment définir une voie moyenne et raisonnable, entre deux écueils: le danger d'en faire trop (dérive << éthiquement correcte >>) et la risque de n'en faire pas assez (comité alibi, décoratif)? Sur ce sujet important, Gérard Toulouse a écrit un livre riche de réflexion et d'anecdotes, plein d'humour, qui donne un aperçu très vivant de la recherche. Il s'appuie aussi sur des documents essentials. Gérard Toulouse, physicien, directeur de recherche à l'ENS-Ulm, fut parmi les premiers membres du Comité d'éthique pour les sciences (CNRS), créé en 1994. Ses thèmes de recherche ont été variés, depuis la physique de la matière condensée jusqu'aux études du cerveau et de la cognition, et ses travaux lui ont valu une notoriéte internationale. Since the Second World War, the need has arisen for a collective reflection on the ethics of science. In 1955, the Russell-Einstein Manifesto gave birth to the Pugwash movement, whose 'Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs' were begun as a way to foster 'the moral conscience of science'. These conferences established a regular forum that has been tolerant and open to scholars and concerned citizens. This organization has especially focused on reducing the danger of armed conflict and seeking solutions to global security threats. Pugwash shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995 for its work on nuclear disarmament. Today the issue of the ethics of science has become primarily relevant for bioethics. Advances in medicine and biology continue to offer an increasing ability to manipulate living things and the body has come to be treated as a source of spare parts. Genetic engineering is proving capable of making a living thing, almost to order. Because technical barriers no longer protect the privacy of the body and the dignity of the human person, it has became even more urgent to continue to develop and understand the legal and ethical bounds in science. Other concerns also underly the scientific ethical movement. These includes concerns over the conduct of researchers because cases of misconduct (fraud, plagiarism) have raised the alarm about the possible deterioration of standards of the profession. As a related concern, there is more attention that needs to be paid to 'questionable practices'. Like most major countries, France has implemented various ethics committees. What should be their modern role be? More concretely, how do we define a reasonable middle ground and between two dangers: the danger of doing too much (drifting towards unproductive 'political correctness') and the danger of not doing enough (alibis provided by collective work and merely 'decorative' ethical declarations)? On this important subject, Gérard Toulouse has written this book of reflection and humorous anecdotes intended to provide a lively overview of scientific research. The text also includes essential documents on the subject of scientific ethics. Gérard Toulouse, a physicist, director of research at the ENS-Ulm, was among the first members of the 'Comité d'éthique pour les sciences' (CNRS), the Ethics Committee for Science, established in 1994. His research topics have ranged from the physics of condensed matter to studies of the brain and cognition, and his work has earned international recognition. 5.5"x8.9", 240 pages.
