Ethics and Anthropology by Anne-Marie Cantwell

Book Description

Since the 1970s, anthropologists have moved into diverse workplaces, including private and public settings, that raise new issues for anthropology as a discipline, as well as for the discourse on science more generally. In the context of increasing globalization, the articulation of new ethical dilemmas around such issues as technology, indigenous knowledge and rights, governmental regulation, and bioethics among others, can inform and shape scientific public policy. The authors in this volume work in traditional research centres and universities as well as in private and public sectors, and across specialties that range from medical anthropology and social medicine to archaeology and cyberspace. They explore the dimensions of an "ethical anthropology" in today's world, and in the unique contribution of anthropology to the sciences.
