Final Paper/Writing assignment Please write an analysis of a technology or a scientific development and its relationship to the values inherent in our culture and then compare this technology (scientific development) with the values of another culture. 1.    Choose a technology or a scientific development that has not been discussed in this course yet.
The topics have been discussed are:
(1) Man or Machine.
(2) Technology, Values, Value Analysis and Universal Healthcare
(3) Technology and Internet
(4) Culture, U.S. Values, Fast Food
(5) Society, Economy and the Law

(12) Progress
(13) Energy I: Security, Fossil Fuels, Nuclear Power
(14) Energy II: Solar & Wind,Biomass & Biofuels,Fuel Cells & Geothermal,
Power Grid & Efficiency Do appropriate research on it. What is appropriate? Well enough that you know all the relevant facts about it, but not more! What is relevant? Every major fact that relates to human values. You will do a lot of research here that will not flow into your paper.
2.    Examine how this technology or a scientific development is related to the values in our culture.
a.    Which values are affected and how so? What worldview are these values rooted in? Are these values part of a value cluster?
b.    Check for value constraints, conflicts and trade-off and related issues.
3.    Select a culture different from ours. Examine how this technology or a scientific development is related to the values in that culture.
a.    Which values are affected and how so? What worldview are these values rooted in? Are these values part of a value cluster?
b.    Check for value constraints, conflicts and trade-off and related issues.
4.    In your final evaluation, analyze how these two different cultures would apply that concept of progress to that technology (or scientific development). You are free to pick whatever topic interests you. The more of a personal interest you have in the topic, and the better you apply the concepts we learned so far in the course, the better the paper will probably be. I expect you to
a.    do quality research and proper citations (check the “citation link”). However, I do not care which citation style you choose! Wikipedia is NOT a valid academic source to cite! (but might be useful as a start for your research)
b.    analyze and critically evaluate your research outcome develop your own thoughts
c.    write a structured paper. Please check my “Advice on Writing Papers” link. Please use Microsoft Word. I cannot read it in other software. Length: 5 pages, Arial or Calibri 10 font, line spacing 1.5 I can only accept papers which a. have a title, course number, student’s name and are paginated
b. are in Microsoft Word

d. are submitted before the deadline
