How do life science technologies mediate moral understandings and responsibilities in food and health contexts?

Life science technologies are essential parts of modern health care and food production processes. Such technologies inevitably change the way how we as humans relate to the (natural and social) world around us, and how we see ourselves and our moral responsibilities to care for health, and for animals and the environment. These topics are explored in a symposium on 20 April, organised by the Philosophy chair group at Wageningen University, connected to the inaugural lecture of Bart Gremmen.
