Putting Cost-Benefit Analysis in Its Place: Ethical Questions for Courses in Food, Energy, and Technology: A Course Description
Journal of Environmental Education
During the fall of 1980, a natural scientist, a social scientist, and a research scholar taught an interdisciplinary course for freshmen at Denison University entitled "Scientific Inquiry and the Human Prospect." The course focused on how to deal with food and energy scarcities and raised ethical questions concerning what values need to be considered in addition to performing cost-benefit analyses when assessing alternative food and energy policies. The following paragraphs summarize the main value questions discussed in the course and explain why they are needed to supplement cost-benefit analyses.
