The discourse of science, ethics and liability coincide in clinical trials, but they are differentiated in that they are based on discrete assumptions and have different implications for practice. While these discourses may have some resemblance to one another, they service different purposes and need to be distinguished. Despite the bounded nature of these discourses, it is argued that there is a intrinsic dependency between science and ethics that occur in the common terrain of interpersonal interaction.
