Subject Today “Ethics” is everywhere, also regarding science and technology. This is not just fashion, but also has strong reasons: science and technology have produced vast knowledge and highly effective manual intervention. The associated modern hopes of progress, liberation and justice between social groups and between the sexes were replaced by ambivalence experience: There are desirable, problematic and fateful objectives and effects. Academic research and education needs to develop discernment: How can the highly efficient scientific and technological opportunities be human controlled and prevented or at least minimized irresponsible effects?
