The 14th edition of Cave Hill Philosophy Symposium (CHiPS) is hosted by the Department of History and Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities and Education of the The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.
Theme: Conversations XIV: Medicine, Technology, Ethics
Technological developments in medicine have rapidly moved beyond life-saving into various forms of human enhancement. While these may be seen as expanding our opportunities to live a good life and to achieve our ends, they also raise doubts about autonomy, fairness, and the nature of the post-human. The 14th Cave Hill Philosophy Symposium aims to explore a range of the ethical considerations arising from these concerns.
The Symposium begins on Apr 24th at 7:00 pm with a Keynote Address at the 3Ws Pavilion.
Keynote Speaker: Professor Julian Savulescu - Controversial Ethicist, University of Oxford
Topic: The Ethics of Gene Editing: Now and the Future
Respondent: Professor Francoise Baylis - University Research Professor, NTE Impact Ethics, Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University
On Apr 25th and 26th there will be a symposium on the ethical implications of new medical technologies at the Shell Suite of The Solutions Centre.
