In the standard “ethical” framing of the encounter between disciplinary practitioners and non-disciplinary claimants, “science” meets “tradition”, and “knowledge” meets something else (belief, superstition, local custom). If the first (science, knowledge, the world of the discipline) belongs to the present and to the projective future, then the second belongs to the past and the world of tradition. Discussions around ethics become encounters between incommensurate values: modern, disciplinary science encounters something else (nondisciplinary non-knowledge).
