The biology of ethics or the ethics of biology? The biologist's Quest for meaning

Acta Biotheoretica 27 (1-2):124-129 (1978)
The biologist's involvement in value issues concerning the methodology of biological sciences, in establishing the biological basis of ethics and in creating a value system based on biological knowledge is examined. It is proposed that the roots of this involvement are in the conflict of the knowledge-ethic with the established system of values and in the need for metaphysical explanation.
