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.
The contributors of the symposium are:
- Cor van der Weele
Professor of humanistic philosophy, Wageningen University
- Peter-Paul Verbeek
Professor of Philosophy of Technology, University of Twente
- Ibo van der Poel
Anthoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor in Ethics and Technology at Delft University
- Ludo Hellebrekers
Professor and director of Wageningen Bioveterinary Research
