Presentation given for the ‘Imagining the (Post-) Human Future: Meaning, Critique, and Consequences.
During the London 2012 Games, the Wellcome Trust gallery has held its ‘Superhuman’ exhibition, to which I contributed. It’s a great exhibition – effectively my whole academic life in a few rooms – and it’s on until 16 October (day after my birthday). It’s also got some of the content online, including a floating head interview with me, along with people I’ve worked with in the past: Anders Sandberg, Julian Savulescu, John Harris, Bennett Foddy, and Barbara Sahakian.
From 28-30 October, I’ll be speaking at the Battle of Ideas in London. I’ll take part in two sessions, both broadly focused on the ethics of biological modification. The first is on Saturday and are titled ‘Designer people: is technology making us less human?’ (Sun, 1230pm, Lecture Theatre 1) and ‘Smart Drugs: Magic Bullet or Cheating Ourselves?’ (Sun, 345pm, Lecture Theatre 1)
