dc.description.abstract There is a common necessity of choice which can be found both in the humanities and the sciences. While the two fields have long been thought of as being distinct and isolated from each other, I propose that they are actually very much connected. Choices and decision-making in both fields are based upon a common value system. Research of such literary works as Oedipus Rex, Paradise Lost, and A Doll's House has shown me that choices and decision-making change as society changes. Similarly, as technology develops in areas such as genetics, the scientific world is increasingly faced with problems requiring difficult ethical decision-making choices. It is this type of analogous situation in literature and in genetics that this paper explores. Specific examples from both literature and genetics will be cited as evidence.
