Disambiguation page?[edit]

This article is written like a disambiguation page, but I don't know that the various items on this list belong together such that they need to be disambiguated. I'm also not sure what use the "see also" section is or how the links there relate to the theme "morality of science." The term "morality of science," moreover, does not seem to be a term of art. Perhaps this page belongs in the wiktionary rather than here? RJC TalkContribs 19:02, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

I concur. This is obviously a disambiguation page. I have recategorised it as such. Unfortunately it needs some clean-up to be a proper disambiguation.
In particular the "see also" section either needs a major overhaul, or deletion. Plus the individual listing could be rewritten to be clearer. --Andrewaskew (talk) 05:43, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
   When you say "concur", i suppose you must be referring to your agreement with RJC's doubts about the value of the See also section. But IMO you are both mistaken in supposing that the See also is a timely aspect for discussion. What should be done with that ancillary apparatus will be of interest when the direction of the page as a whole is clear.
   Your claim "obviously a disambiguation page" amounts to an insult to every editor who has modified the page over the past year, and most of those who didn't choose to get involved with its fate. I am reverting your edit, rewriting the lead, and posting a note at WP:WikiProject Disambiguation soliciting the concurrence of the editors most familiar with Dab issues, that those issues are insignificant to the accompanying main-namespace page's fate. If you are right, i will be shouted down there.

   The page is written (with the exception of the lead sent) like a list, and it should probably be considered a List article. I am changing the lead accordingly.
