Although science plays depict different scientific fields (physics, chemistry, astronomy, biology, etc.), they all depict similar ethical issues related to science. Science plays tend not only to portray scientists and scientific theories, but also to dramatize the ethics of science. This paper will first define the term “science play” and then discuss the ethical issues raised in postmodern science plays. These issues include the obsessive pursuit of science which causes scientists to ignore their families, the competitive nature of scientists, and the effects (both known and unforeseen) of scientific discoveries on society.
