Konferencja "Bioethics Meets Political Philosophy" – 26-27 styczeń 2024

Konferencja "Bioethics Meets Political Philosophy" – 26-27 styczeń 2024

Konferencja organizowana przez Interdyscyplinarne Centrum Etyki UJ ma na celu zbadanie i dalsze rozwijanie relacji pomiędzy bioetyką a filozofią polityczną, szczególnie – choć nie wyłącznie – w zakresie demokratycznych rozważań i zaufania. W wydarzeniu wezmą udział specjaliści zajmujący się bioetyką, filozofią polityczną i filozofią nauki, w szczególności filozofią medycyny.

Keynote speaker

Alex Broadbent (Durham University)

Bioethics discusses problems of political significance, such as the distribution of resources, regulating research with human participants, limiting new technologies in biomedicine (e.g., germline gene modification), the value and limits of privacy, ownership of body parts, conflicts between individual and public goods in healthcare and others. Nevertheless, thus far there has been relatively little exploration on how bioethics relates to political philosophy. Exploring topics on the intersection between these fields is particularly important in the context of issues such as public health emergencies, vaccine hesitancy, science skepticism, and the decline of public trust. On the one hand, this exchange can help bioethics move forward by drawing on current work in political philosophy. On the other, canonical discussions in political philosophy (such as on distributive justice, social equality, the limits of state authority, freedom, and domination) can all benefit from a better appreciation of the ethical aspects of health.
