Man's Power to Shape His Own Biologic Destiny--Will Society Be Prepared to Use It Wisely?
Description:
This appeared shortly before Nirenberg's more famous editorial in Science in the fall of 1967. Nirenberg confronts the same issues of knowledge and power and the future of genetic research. Anticipating the time that "man may be able to program his own cells with synthetic information." Nirenberg notes that this will happen long before man can "assess adequately the long-term consequences of such alterations" and resolve the ethical and moral problems it will raise.
