Daly, H. (1991), Steady State Economics. As technology increases the sophistication of products and processes, so the scientific, technological and industrial resources and skills for development and production become more costly and complex. (1982), Sleepers, Wake! Reports by the Australian Science and Technology Council are typical of those produced by science advisory bodies around the industrialised world in giving traditional views on the government's motivation (ASTEC 1990). Or we can seek to understand what is happening and to exert some measure of control. The Americans have coined a brutal phrase for this pressure: 'publish or perish'. The priorities for public-sector support of research in any country should be closely linked, or at least broadly related, to social and economic priorities. The most obvious example in recent decades is the expansion of the useful oil resources by development of techniques for exploiting oil beneath the sea. However—and this is a key point—it generally did not seek to compete with industry in other countries. Canberra: Australian Government Publishing Service. He was able to collect a mass of material from different scientific fields, all pointing to the idea that the continents, over hundreds of millions of years, had moved. People in the southern United States live in a different climate and eat different types of food from those in Norway. Assumptions that there would be widespread use of nuclear power and the implicit idea that the United States would be a model for world development were seen as unrealistically optimistic. Some politicians are driven SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND PUBLIC POLICY 187 by their values to seek ways of resolving problems by government intervention, while others have values that lead them to seek market-based solutions. For example, religious believers often regard acts in this way. 42 SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL COMMUNITIES The Manhattan Project The Manhattan Project produced three atomic bombs; one was tested in July 1945, and the other two were dropped on Japan one month later. In this kind of argument, a certain use of technology presents considerable benefits to the community as a whole—at least in CONTROVERSIES 95 the opinion of decision-makers. Students might, for example, use their knowledge about nutrition and issues relating to for-profit food manufacturing, along with data from their own inquiries into eating habits of students in a school cafeteria, to lobby the school administration to improve the nutritional value of foods on offer in the school. Most people believe that they would refuse to give the shocks quite early: usually below 150 volts. New York: Free Press. Clearly, the theory of continental drift had not made its way into the core of scientific knowledge. He told the story of a village with a common large enough for each of the thirty households to graze one cow. (Note that we can infer that there was a substantial population increase in the latter part of the eighteenth century which was sustained in the nineteenth century.) 426–40. This process took months after the New Zealand election in 1996, with feverish speculation about which parties would combine to form a government. This ideal raises difficulties. The brief outline of Science, Technology and Society, above, shows how science has increased in importance. This growing attention to basic research has been a feature of Japanese science and technology in recent years, reflecting a concern that exploitable areas of research have begun to show diminishing returns. Coney was cross-examined for four days. (1994) The rationale of STS education is in the approach. In industry, by contrast, the firm's financial position is the key factor. Their details are not important: the aim always is to further the scientists' career, and to give some security in a difficult, uncertain profession. The Capri program ended in 1994, but Ford Australia has recently (1996) announced plans to produce another small model to replace it, utilising a similar export credit arrangement under the car plan. It explored options for a sustainable future. Cambridge, Mass. In that sense, energy can be regarded as the key resource. Encourage and enable students to take actions to address socioscientific issues; which implies that they use their literacy in science and technology (re: elements of STEPWISE) for improving the wellbeing of individuals, societies and environments. Freedom from invasion by foreign armies is not something which THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY 31 can be limited: either a country is secure, or it is not. It was, rather, a period of considerable change that was concentrated in certain sectors, and also in certain geographical regions: sectors that were amenable to, and ready for, technical and technological change, and regions that were able to accommodate and service the new forms of production. In the Third World, 'learning by doing' was an important way of acquiring this capacity. Often this is the only direct reward they receive for their work. Etzkowitz, H. (1993), 'Enterprises from Science: The Origins of Science-based Regional Economic Development', Minerva, 31, 3:326-30. He also used biology to support his arguments. In contrast to New Scientist and Scientific American, journals report scientific results to other scientists. In industry, though, there are strong disincentives: firms do not want their knowledge spread round, and usually insist that their employees sign non-disclosure agreements to prevent knowledge leaking out. You consult the scientist, who is watching you closely. Therefore, from his viewpoint, the women were not ill and required no treatment. They specialise in different parts of this vast field, but all have important things to say, and say it in clear English. Then Chapter 3 takes up the issue of how far scientists are ethically responsible for the work they do. It is clear that there is no simple answer to this, and the result is likely to be an uneasy—and temporary—set of compromises which may not make much sense when compared to each other. So we want to convince scientists to accept responsibility for their work in the belief that they are, on the whole, decent people like the rest of us, who would refrain from doing the wrong thing if they could.) The value of such personnel to the countries to which they migrated, which immediately benefited from their expertise without paying for their prior education and training, constituted a reverse form of foreign aid from the poor countries to the rich. : Harvard University Press. The Nuremberg Code (1949) 1. Many older industries foundered—notably in the states of Victoria and South Australia—but the federal government, as we have seen, introduced measures to foster R&D. However, such enterprise would be shortlived were there no outside demand for the goods in question. Gross and Levitt (1994) and Levin (1988) have criticised feminist approaches to science, and Denfeld (1995) has criticised Gilligan's research as poorly constructed and unconvincing. As we saw, feelings run high between scientists arguing for the necessity of animal experiments and animal rights groups, who believe that animals do have rights and that experiments violate these rights. Without Neddermeyer, no Fat Man and hence no bombing of Nagasaki (unless of course someone else had been clever enough to come up with that design). Another major example is to be found in modern biotechnology and the development of processes of genetic manipulation designed to alter the structure of living organisms. 3. It follows that human beings can always decide what research is done, and what is done with the results: science and technology are not the product of some unstoppable force, but are human products which both shape, and are shaped by, the society from which they emerge. We must bring our discussion of King Cotton to a close with some brief remarks about the development of the industry in the nineteenth century. 9. He can move one hand, enough to press a few buttons on a small keyboard before him. (eds) (1982), The Economics of New Technology in Developing Countries. Numbers of patents granted in Great Britain Year Total patents 1700-60 1761-80 1781-1830 Patents per decade 370 536 4,479 60 255 900 Source: Inkster 1991:41. of innovations that peak periodically, a theory which is discussed at length in Chapter 8.) Green was horrified by the amount of surgery carried out on women, in his view largely unnecessary. They make ambit claims, and settle for less than their demands. This latter needs a little explanation. Not for nothing are nuclear arms called weapons of mass destruction. Harmondsworth: Penguin. More importantly, perhaps, the success of the newly industrialising countries such as Singapore suggested that the benefits to be obtained from a partnership with the global corporations far outweighed the costs and, for that reason also, little attention was directed towards the issues which had engaged researchers in the 1970s. Donovon (1979) focuses on Watt. Ziman,J. Merton saw science as a self-regulating community of researchers, governed by a strong and distinctive ethos. Science and technology now take up a substantial part of the world's wealth, and are important factors in the future of all nations. This does not imply that such growth is continuous and consistent. It was, however, dismissal and the threat of it that was the main instrument for enforcing discipline (Pollard 1963:259). For instance, a spinning machine that could make ten threads for the same effort that was THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION 121 formerly required to make one would result in a tenfold productivity increase. Singer, P. (1993), Practical Ethics, 2nd edn. Once the bomb was shown to be a practical possibility, there is a sense in which the scientific research was over. The technology itself is important, but what technology is introduced, where and under what conditions, are also critical in determining the impacts— in short, who gains and who loses from technological innovation. The program brings together humanists, social scientists, engineers, and natural scientists, all committed to transcending the boundaries of their disciplines in a … [Cartwright 1988:95] The commission's conclusions were comprehensive, and a few matters were of prime importance. Natural eco-systems are more than just our surroundings; we are actually part of the natural systems of the planet. World Bank (1996), World Development Report. Simpson's powerful intervention came close to achieving closure in the field. Another important development concerns the flow of money to do scientific experiments. The most dramatic development, of course, took place right at the end, when scientists took the initiative in telling the American President Franklin Roosevelt about the possible development of an atomic bomb, vastly more powerful than any other explosive. MARTIN BRIDGSTOCK is a political scientist and is currently senior lecturer and Director of the Science Policy Research Centre at Griffith University. Lowe, I. By the mid-1970s, the long post-war period of stability had come to a close, along with the financial arrangements known as the Bretton Woods agreement, which had underwritten a period of significant and sustained growth in the global economy. A plant biologist named Lysenko disputed, among other things, the existence of genes and the process of evolution. Many observers in the Third World itself saw it as an attempt to impose a second-best technology on the less-developed countries which, far from liberating them, would reinforce their situation of dependency and subordination (Harrison 1983:154-5). Topics include the responsibilities of scientists, ethical dilemmas and controversies, the Industrial Revolution, economic issues, public policy, and science and technology in developing countries. We shall look at some of these, and ask why they did so. Two New STS Concentrations 2020-21! Watt could thus simply have tried a separate condenser to see what would happen. The same advisory body made a further attempt at strategic planning with a major foresight exercise during 1995-96, culminating in an impressive report on the problem of matching science and technology to Australia's future needs (ASTEC 1996). But Neddermeyer did. To some scientists, the Nazi concentration camps were a huge temptation: here were people who could be experimented on with none of the normal problems. In 1943 George Gaylord Simpson, a distinguished palaeontologist, made a powerful onslaught upon the idea of drift. Related to this perspective is the view that technology is often designed by men, and so is insensitive to the needs and views of women (e.g. His boss, a harddriving researcher, trumpeted his results across the nation, but Summerlin was unable to produce the results expected. Schroeer, D. (1984), Science, Technology and the Nuclear Arms Race. For instance, Watt knew that the inefficiency of the Newcomen engine was due to the high heat capacity of the working cylinder, and hence that to heat up and cool down only the small condensing chamber would require much less fuel. There is no doubt that something like utilitarianism does affect the way we think about right and wrong. The Cattlemen's Association and the Small Shopkeepers' Association also represent clearly the interests of particular groups in society. The research and teaching conducted at the division encompasses a broad spectrum of perspectives. But contrary to a commonly held view— that there exists some kind of inevitability in scientific and technological 'progress'—it can be shown that conscious decision by policy-makers can have a major bearing on the directions taken by science and technology, including the kinds of economic activity in which science and technology are employed. Two of the three (Betty and Chu) prefer vanilla to strawberry. "…Despite its high standard of scholarship, the journal is designed to be accessible to a broad range of scientists working in R&D fields. It looks as if we shall be coping with the aftermath of the Cold War, and the involvement of science in it, for many years to come. If we extend rights to these and not to animals who are persons, argues Singer, then we are guilty of 'speciesism'—an equivalent to racism. 1982). In this area, the argument has swung right away from the view that drugs are a benefit to the view that they have considerable risks, and these must be guarded against. Ecologists criticise the failure to include an understanding of ecological impacts in decisions about technological change (Trainer 1985; SoEAC 1996). 34 SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL COMMUNITIES As it was, counter-measures appeared in a few weeks, and the opportunity was lost (Ziman 1976). Landes, D. (1969), The Unbound Prometheus. For instance, a machine hand whose job it was to mend broken threads on a power loom was doing work very different from that of the weaver in pre-industrial Britain. Killing innocent people cannot ever be good, unless 'good' is defined away as 'justified' or 'the lesser of two evils'. As a result, it is not worth the while of any firm to invest in the R&D, even though, considered as a whole, it will yield results far greater than the cost. These are examples of court decisions that have effectively determined public policy. Gatton, Qld: Lockyer Printing. The moral is that it is entirely possible for the overall sum of a set of perfectly rational individual decisions to lead to a very bad outcome for the group as a whole. In the rural sector too, the reliance upon Western science and technology was proving costly, with the rural poor often bearing a disproportionate share of the burden of innovation. Sociologist Harry Collins, well before the cold fusion uproar, studied a similar controversy in detail, and came up with some illuminating findings. (ed.) Aldershot: Avebury. This condemned a number of poor countries in the Third World, who relied solely on one Table 2.2. There are many reasons why students, whether scientists or not, should study science and technology in their social aspects. Science has greatly helped in granting people answers to everyday questions and also offering solutions to a lot of problems that we encounter … Some opponents of using the data have argued that the data is not reliable anyway (Berger 1992:115). Another method, which avoids this problem, is to give the title of the work, e.g. This rail network was responsible also for demographic change. In all, by 1926, 96 per cent of Australia's export earnings were from primary products (Page 1926a). To argue that it cannot is wildly implausible, for it would be necessary to show either that science-based technologies are always good for us, or that, for those that are not, scientists are somehow absolved of any blame. A member shall not use in any estimate, report, testimony or other statement in connection with the promotion of a business enterprise any exaggerated, irrelevant or merely laudatory expression or any speculative opinion or forecast. Reid 1996). A particular political party forms a government because it has a majority in the parliament, so that government can usually expect to get its way in parliament. Smith's own favourite example of the division of labour in the manufacture of a simple product, a pin, is famous: A workman not educated to this business ... nor acquainted with the use of the machinery employed could scarce, perhaps, with his utmost industry make one pin in a day, and certainly could not make twenty. As we saw in Chapter 2, it leads to pressure on scientists to hold back from publishing their results until commercial avenues are explored (Lowe 1996). : MIT Press. And power-driven machinery needed special buildings, it needed factories. SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND THE FUTURE Population Population Time 243 Population Time Time Figure 11.2 Three models of population growth in a closed system. [Lamberton 1970; see also Minter 1941] SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND THE ECONOMY 139 Interestingly, the CSIR's most acclaimed achievement during this early era was its introduction (not eradication), in conjunction with state Departments of Agriculture, of a plant pest. A labour force that has to earn its keep in the factory is in a much weaker position than one whose members work from home. It took months of effort from Helena Wachslicht-Rodbard before the truth finally came out. A complicated series of debates ensued in different fields—geology, climatology and biology—between the 'drifters' and the 'fixists' as the supporters of the two points of view came to be known. Wood, F. Q., and Meek, V. (eds) (1993), Research Grants Management and Funding. Science, technology and society (STS) is an interdisciplinary program of study that focuses on understanding the relationship between scientific developments and the everyday lives of people. We can also ask: would any of the doctors like to be studied in this way? The pharmaceutical industry was bitterly attacked because of repeated scandals regarding drug safety. A member shall not be involved with harassment of another person in the course of professional activities, shall not condone such behaviour in a colleague or permit such behaviour by a subordinate. This latter point is vital. This approach was also applied to science, and the Marxist view of science became known to scholars in the West through a conference on the history of science, called Science at the Crossroads, which was held in London in 1931. Notable among the Soviet delegation was a historian named Boris Hessen, who gave a paper entitled 'The Social and Economic Roots of Newton's PrincipicC (Hessen 1931). The theory of plate tectonics has also proved useful in explaining earthquakes and volcanoes. London: Frances Pinter. Despite these stated aims, it would be hard to make a case that the Australian government has ever been really committed to a serious evaluation of future options. Indeed, in many journals, scientists are actually charged for the publication of their work. And if the next reference is to a different page of the same work, then you write: 8. It is both positive and negative. It shows, for Australian R&D, that business research is completely concentrated upon the purpose of economic development. All correspondence among members is completed via e-mail, and all meetings are held via Skype, with English as the language of instruction and publication. Technology has always been important in human affairs. The loom was set up in the cottage and the weaver would weave the yarn brought to him by a travelling merchant, to whom he would deliver the finished cloth and be paid by the piece. It could be argued that it is about regulation versus freedom of choice, but it is clearly not in the same category as, say, the seat-belt controversy. Pedretti, E., & Forbes (2000) From curriculum rhetoric to classroom reality, STSE education. Argument bogged down into details, with people disagreeing on what it all meant. Why not? They may be unwelcoming, or unavailable, to students with problems, or for any activity which does not help them increase their publication list. As we shall see, one of the most difficult areas concerns animals: exactly how far should rights and considerations be extended to non-human species? But just as no account of cotton would be complete without mention of Sir Richard Arkwright, no discussion of the relations of science to technology in the Industrial Revolution would be complete without mention ofJames Watt's steam engine. Burch, D. F. (1982), 'Appropriate Technology for the Third World: Why the Will is Lacking', TheEcologist, 12, 2, March-April. There is no approved list of practitioners. For many years, the complexity, uncertainty and novelty of palaeomagnetism left fixists unconvinced. 1: Commodity Markets and Resource Management. Marx understood that technology need not only be used to improve the productivity of labour, but could also be used to replace workers. If you spend any time looking at the economic news, two points will strike you. It remains true, however, that Australian firms invest much less in R&D than their overseas counterparts in the same industry sectors. Its charter consisted of three tasks: to monitor those developments in science and technology which are likely to have significant social, economic or political impacts; to spread information about those developments and their possible impacts; and in those ways, to make it possible for people to play a greater role in determining their future (CFF 1988). The second reason for writing the book was the need to fill a gap in the market. For many years, following the perspectives of sociologist Robert Merton discussed in Chapter 2, science was regarded as a self-policing system, where fraud and unethical behaviour were controlled by scientists themselves. The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment. This chapter discusses the complex problem of trying to use science and technology to develop a preferred future. McGauran, P. (1996), Science and Technology Budget Statement, 1996-97. What can be done? This seems to be what we want, for we want to capture the idea that Tibbets and the others were all causally involved with the dropping of the bomb. Code of ethics of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (By-laws 1994, no. In addition, as larger farmers grew even richer, they began to invest in labour-saving technologies such as tractors, and thousands of agricultural labourers also lost their jobs. Without doubt, some of the provisions of these codes clarify matters. The programs are educational opportunities, so students are not paid for their participation. Minnesota: Minnesota University Press, 1989. New York: Norton. Thus sustainable development is a pattern of development which can be continued. Sevenoaks, Kent: Hodder and Stoughton.
