CALL FOR PAPERS
TRANSFORMING HUMANITY: FANTASY? DREAM? NIGHTMARE?
Conference at the University of Pennsylvania, December 3-4, 2010
Scheduled Speakers: Allen Buchanan (Duke), Arthur Caplan (Penn), Martha Farah (Penn), Ronald Lindsay (CFI), Maxwell Mehlman (Case Western), Jonathan Moreno (Penn), Rosemarie Tong (UNC-Charlotte)
“Transforming Humanity: Fantasy? Dream? Nightmare?” suggests three of the main approaches that have been taken in addressing human enhancements, namely that it is unrealistic to expect significant changes to human nature through enhancements, that significant changes are both possible and desirable, and that significant changes are possible but are highly undesirable. We invite papers from all academic disciplines that address any aspect of the conference theme, especially where scientific and technological breakthroughs may call for novel approaches to dealing with human transformation.
