Abstract: Aristotle subordinated ethics to science, since ethics is not purely rational. He believed in the superiority of the purely rational. This view was adopted by Aquinas and other mediaeval Aristotelians. The thesis of the article is that the Aristotelian view is partly responsible for the absence of ethical control over much of modern science and technology.
