Abstract

How do biotechnologies challenge our social boundarires?

The Purdue Bioethics Seminar Series seeks to continue to press the issue of ethics in science and technology here at Purdue. We intend to build opportunities for engagement between philosophy, policy, and science at a campus-wide level and to raise awareness of the ethical implications of biotechnological development for our environment both local and global. Hosting scholars from across the region brings new perspectives to the Purdue community on these issues. Each years' seminar series focuses on two central themes in bioethics. For the 2007-2008 series, these themes are the ethical issues of climate change and those of issues in medical technologies.
