Our Future and the Genome

What difference will advances in the science of genetics and DNA make to our future and how should philosophers and ethicists respond to it?

Genes Talking is a ground-breaking time-based installation of a live working laboratory in the ICA theatre. To coincide with Genes Talking, three talks will take place.

Our Future and the Genome: A Lecture by Peter Singer
How will it affect the way that we think about ourselves and our children, our ideas about free will and our relationship with animals? To mark the launch of the ICA’s live sequencing lab, Peter Singer, one of the world’s leading ethicists and theorists of animal rights, will deliver a lecture on our future and the genome. Peter Singer is the DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University and editor of In Defense of Animals: The Second Wave and co-editor of The Moral of the Story. Following his lecture, Singer will be in conversation with Julian Savulescu, Uehiro Professor of Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford.
