Miller: I’m having some difficulty with many of these talk. I think the difficulty is how I and others understand what bioethics is. The theme that has been running in these talks is the training of young minds to think for themselves. But in fact what you have done is just giving them one view, rather than giving them discipline to argue, I mean, to look at dilemmas and to try to argue one way or the other. For example, you say affects of learning, does it have a genetic component but in fact affects of learning has a very considerable genetic component. And, so, you know, that in itself maybe a mistake and there were a few others, but the point that I’m trying to make is that you are indoctrinating rather than providing someone with the skill to examine ethical dilemmas.
Rajan: Thank you very much. But I would like to stress that the student is free to do his own learning. We just provide them with two frames from the beginning of the chapter and the necessary documents for other parts of learning.
Macer: Thank you very much. We will expect some more songs in a short time.
