The dynamic development of modern life sciences in the field of gene modifications, human enhancement or the synthetic creation of new forms of life has brought with it several changes and far-reaching transformations that require increased attention of modern humanities. One of the most significant phenomena can be considered the multilevel crossing of the borders between different scientific disciplines and the erasure of the validity of existing identification criteria, interpretive frameworks and assessment standards. The prepared international scientific workshop aims to consistently respond to this current situation and analyze the shifts in borders from three philosophical perspectives, namely from an ontological, epistemological and ethical perspective. Another intention is to map the current transdisciplinary crossing of borders between bio-scientific and artistic discourses.
Speakers include Peter Sýkora (UCM Centre for Bioethics, SK),
Adam Doležal (Czech Academy of Science, CZ), Martin Zielina (Charles
University, CZ), Jaromir Škoda (Charles University, CZ), Bogumila Suwara
(Slovak Academy of Science, SK), Robert Birkholch (University of Warsaw, PL),
Weronika Lipsycz (University of Warsaw, PL), Jana Tomašovičová (UCM Centre for Bioethics, SK), along with others.
