    schema:description "With the emergence of many new branches of ethical debate and discourse in such areas as computer science, genetic engineering, and environmental sciences, there is an increasing need for a reference work that clearly outlines the many ethical issues in science and technology that have arisen in modern societies. Encyclopedia of Ethics in Science and Technology is the only single-volume resource to provide extensive coverage of such issues. Historically and internationally comprehensive, the encyclopedia features more than 400 entries that describe the varied ethical controversies in science and technology: laws, precedent-setting cases, regulations, agencies and organizations, ethical principles, concepts, people, and important events. Also covered are phenomena that are at the fringe of science but have important ethical implications, including voodoo deaths and experimental research into extrasensory perception (ESP). All entries are written in an objective manner, allowing readers to reach an even-handed understanding of these controversial issues. Coverage includes acid rain, Chernobyl nuclear accident, Darwin, electromagnetic radiation, ethics of care, fraudulent research, genetic engineering, Internet and information ethics, lead poisoning and neurological problems, organ donation, plagiarism, Rousseau, Three Mile Island nuclear accident, and video games/desensitization to violence."@en ;
