Kathinka Evers, Ph.D., received her Ph.D. from Lund University, Sweden in 1991 after doctoral studies at the University of Oxford, Balliol college, UK, and The Australian National University, Research School of Social Sciences, Canberra. She was previously senior researcher at the Centre for Bioethics at Karolinska Institutet and Uppsala University. Between 1997-2002 she was Executive Director for the Standing Committee on Responsibility and Ethics in Science (SCRES) of the International Council for Science (ICSU). 2010, she was invited professor at École Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.
Modern neuroscience has brought novel knowledge of the human brain and neurocultural identity. These discoveries are important not only from the scientific or philosophical view, but also from the medical, legal and social perspectives, as they may lead to profound changes in fundamental concepts such as human identity, self, integrity, responsibility and freedom.
Neuroethics is an expanding discipline lying in the interface between the empirical brain sciences, philosophy of mind, moral philosophy, ethics and the social sciences. It deals with the questions that arise when scientific findings about the brain are carried into philosophical analyses, medical practice, legal interpretations, or health and social policies.
This intensive workshop will cover a range of moral, social, and legal issues emerging from the brain sciences and the related biotechnologies, and is thus relevant for a wide range of academic disciplines and professions.
THE PROGRAM This in-depth seminar will include topical lectures, case studies, site visits and discussions. Course lecturers are internationally recognized experts in neuroscience and philosophy. Participants will have the opportunity to interact informally with each other and with the course faculty, while they take in all that Buenos Aires has to offer. Attendees will receive a certificate of completion from Uppsala Universitet and Fundación Crimson. Simultaneous Translation (English-Spanish)
