Conference "Yale-Oxford-Jagiellonian BioXPhi Summit" – 27th-30th of June

Conference "Yale-Oxford-Jagiellonian BioXPhi Summit" – 27th-30th of June

The conference organised by the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, the Oxford Uehiro Center for Practical Ethics and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Ethics JU explored the experimental philosophical bioethics ("bioxphi").






The keynote speakers were Joshua Knobe (Yale) and Joanna Demaree-Cotton (Oxford). The workshop was co-sponsored by and made possible through support from the Interdisciplinary Centre for Ethics at Jagiellonian University (directed by Tomasz Żuradzki), the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics (directed by Stephen Latham), and the Oxford Uehiro Center for Practical Ethics (led by Julian Savulescu and Roger Crisp). 

Experimental philosophical bioethics ("bioxphi") uses the tools of cognitive science, moral psychology, and experimental philosophy to investigate topics that are traditionally of interest to bioethicists, with an eye to contributing to substantive normative debates in medical ethics and related areas. Example papers can be found at the PhilPapers page for experimental philosophy: bioethics.
