Neutrality/Science/BlackVsNeutrality/BlackVsValue freedom: if science is considered to be rational in the sense of neutral, it runs the risk of becoming inhuman. It must instead be regarded as a human action.
III 84
Neutrality/Robert L. Heilbroner: (sociologist, NY Times Magazine, 19 Jan 1975 p. 14f.): Brings an example by Adam Smith: Adam Smith: E.g. why would a person with a humanistic background, when facing the choice of seinding one million Chinese to death in order to save his little finger, let the Chinese live? (BlackVsSmith: Actually, why Chinese, why not Scots?) Heilbroner/Black: remains remarkably neutral! He believes that there is "no rational answer" to that! One cannot apply a logical calculus to it. BlackVsHeilbroner: Apparently, he did not read the very differentiated magazine in which he had the opportunity to publish carefully. Could anyone be in doubt about giving a human life for the salvation of a little finger?.
