The BNC congratulates Chris Jones* and Juri van den Heever on winning the following award:

*Dr Chris Jones is the head of the Moral Leadership Unit of the Beyers Naudé Centre

This book reflects academically on important and relevant natural scientific disciplines, important technologies, and related media to determine and communicate the moral issues and challenges within those specific fields of study, and how to deal with them morally and from a multidimensional South African context. It aims to add scientific, technological, and ethical value, locally and globally, by reflecting mainly from the viewpoint of specific scholars, writing about the most pressing moral issues or challenges raised by problems within their specific field of study. – Chris Jones & Juri van den Heever

This collected work reflects, in a multidimensional fashion, on moral issues that arise in scientific and technological work. It resembles the South African heritage and circumstances of the authors. Let me state unequivocally that this is a very professionally conceived and completed project. That it is multidimensional is a given – Prof Michael Ruse, Department of Philosophy, Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida, United States of America.
