“Corruption in a Bioethics Free-For-All”

“MacDougall seems to agree that there is little consensus within the field of bioethics, and therefore takes a position that no policy should be adopted that may exclude voices. However, MacDougall’s solution–a bioethics free-for-all–conflates the bioethicist’s personal worldview with a bioethics-society worldview. That this latter does not exist, does not mean that bioethicists are exempt from the wider social norms of the academy or the culture that they live in. A discussion about what the social norms of bioethics ‘should be’, cannot ignore the larger setting of both academic and social expectations regarding corruption.”
