The Medawar Lecture 1998


Is Science Dangerous?
Title of the Article

1. Difficult Concepts (What concepts did you find difficult to understand?)


i. The fear and distrust to science
ii. conflation of science and technology
iii. Eugenics

2. Insights (What new insights or learning did you gain in discussion/ activity?)

i. Before reading the article/understanding the lesson, I thought that


There was no difference between science and technology. I thought that
technology was a product of science that has developed through the years.
I also thought that there are only a few professions that deal with health,
technology, and other professions that deal to all things that exist in this world.
ii. However, reading the article/understanding the lesson, I now think/realize
That there was a large difference between science and technology and that
both are independent with each other. I realized that technologies that were
discovered or built through the years were done in the most unexpected
ways, by unexpected I mean that there was no scientific basis used to invent
or create those things. It was all a matter of trial and error that resulted to the
success of the product. And I also realized that there is always negative
effects on what scientists do that cannot be prevented or stopped.

iii. Before reading the article/understanding the lesson, I thought that


Cloning will help the world to not only preserve but to also create a new way
of giving life.
However, reading the article/understanding the lesson, I now think/realize
That clones can have a very high possibility to have abnormalities that may
affect the clone. And cloning is like playing “God” itself. It is a way of
disrespecting god for they are trying to create living beings that god has
already created.

iv. Before reading the article/understanding the lesson, I thought that


The when it comes to politics and science, politics depends on science when
it comes to the use of medicines, vaccines and knowledge about the things
that many don’t understand.
However, reading the article/understanding the lesson, I now think/realize
That science is also distrusted by governments or politicians that also affects
people’s way of seeing scientist in their own perspective. I also realize that it
all depends on politicians or other leaders to do good or bad for the society.
They have their own way of thinking which also effects the way they do their
own works.

3. Questions (What questions would you want answers for? Or vague areas you
want more explanations about?
i. What good will be brought if scientists all over the world will create a
weapon of mass destruction?
ii. How can they be ready are they in the works that they will create that
may cause a large effect not only to them, but also to the world?
iii. How will they deal with the failure that will happen to their work that can
affect the world and may even cause harm to the people surrounding
them.
