Personal Integrity, Role Alienation, and Utilitarian Moral Enhancement




Justin Oakley, Monash University: Personal Integrity, Role Alienation, and Utilitarian Moral Enhancement

Conference: “Human Enhancement: Destiny or Disaster?”
The prospect of enhancing human mental and physical abilities above normal limits has been enthusiastically embraced by several leading bioethicists and philosophers. However, many people are alarmed by the thought of humans being able to enhance themselves, fearing that this ability may be misused. In this conference leading philosophers and bioethicists come together to discuss whether or not human enhancement is the destiny we should embrace or a potential disaster we should avoid.

Held at the University of Melbourne and hosted by the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (Charles Sturt University and the University of Melbourne) and the Oxford Centre for Neuroethics (University of Oxford).
‘Human Enhancement: Destiny or Disaster?’ was on Friday 3 July, 2015.
Convenors: Steve Clarke, C.A.J. Coady, Julian Savulescu, Alberto Giubilini and Sagar Sanyal.
