SCIENTIFIC TRUTH AND MYTH Many citizens of the world’s developed countries are very well connected to their work. One sees examples everywhere: palm pilots, cell phones with internet access, pagers, fancy watches that tell time and connect to e-mail. Those who possess these marvelous technological achievements assume they lead to greater efficiency, productivity, perhaps even more importance, and, of course, greater happiness. Another view says that we are so connected that we never can be disconnected.
And fixing problems always seems to require personal change . . . and change means doing things that aren’t fun! ” Moving downhill, they begin to go faster. Calvin (looking back at Hobbes): “But if you’re willfully stupid, you don’t know any better, so you can keep doing whatever you like! ” Calvin: “Careful! ” In contrast to Calvin and Hobbes, we bear a responsibility to ask what do we know and what must we learn from the agricultural experience and the limits of agriculture’s ethical horizon?
Developed country agriculture remains enormously productive but its productive techniques and their results compel questions about its goodness. S. Congress passes enormous agricultural subsidy appropriations but “the rural home and rural life”1 suffer and disappear. These kinds of challenges to agricultural science cannot be answered by science alone but they should not be ignored by agricultural scientists. 1 This is the language used in the Hatch Act, United States Code, Section 361b. The problem or problems to be solved must be identified clearly and it will be best if the problem can be addressed and solved in a 2- or 3-year funding period.
