One thing I’ve been pondering lately is what we might use to refer to a gathering of bioethicists?
It seems to me people’s answer to this question might well be sociologically interesting. Take for example the response I received from a sociologist who I asked this question of, he was adamant that it would have to either be a “scare” or a “panic” of bioethicists…
In my darker moments thinking about the discipline myself I have come up with a couple of interesting suggestions including a “confusion”, a “chaos” and my favorite a “philophaster” of bioethicists.
But how about you, any interesting suggestions, how do you refer to a bunch of bioethicists?
