Where is the boundary of the human: the new technological turn

  

A series of 4 lectures and debates on Saturday 27 February, 5, 12  and  19 March  2016, 14.00-16.00

Venue: Lecture hall 147, Lipsius building, Cleveringaplaats 1 2311 BD Leiden (see: https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/locaties/lipsius)

The twentieth century has brought us innovations like information and bio- technology, or the genetic modification of  living beings. However, in the twenty-first century we will be able to dramatically change ourselves as well. The boundaries between nano-, bio- and information technology as well was cognitive sciences will disappear, and this will result in total control over dead and living nature. From the possibility to connect our brains to Internet to a world where the blind can see. 

Yet, the new possibilities imply also new problems. The challenges that convergent technologies confront us with, and what we can do to prepare ourselves will be considered in the series of meetings.
