By improving the knowledge available to man, science enables him to continually increase his control over his environment, facilitate his daily life, and improve his condition. But these developments may raise the question: Are they really desirable for humans, and to what extent?
To avoid the drifts, each new progress obligates us—we humans—to set limits, safeguards, and determine through choices what makes us human beings to contemplate and morality. Obviously, defining precisely what makes our humanity.
How is progress expressed and achieving coexistence and humanity? How do scientists imagine the world of tomorrow? What role does ethics play in science?
