<p>As you can see this course is organised around five themes:</p>
<p>We will start with <span class="bold">AI and robotics</span>, to then move to the debate on <span class="bold">human enhancement</span>. Next, we will look into the link between <span class="bold">[genetic] engineering and environmental ethics</span> and, lastly, we will consider the implications that <span class="bold">developments in neuroscience</span> are having for notions of <span class="bold">responsibility in law</span>. Particular attention will be paid to the “controversies” over these
topics, and different examples will be brought forth so to ensure a lively and up to date discussion with and between students.
</p>
<p>
For each topic we will provide you a literature review, including the main sources you should consider in the discussion. Thus it is necessary, that you first get familiar with the content we provide on each topic, before taking part in the discussion.

<p>
The course will be rolled out in an open discussion forum, installed at the University of Technology in Hamburg. Thus as mentioned before we need you as active participants reflecting on the topics and contents and trying to take your own stance in the
discussion.</p>

Hello everybody,<br><br> My name is Mirko Daniel Garasic and I’m a Visiting Professor in Neuroethics at IMT School for Advanced Studies, Lucca, a Research Scholar at the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights in Rome and Adjunct Lecturer in
Bioethics at LUISS University, Rome.
</p>
<p>
My research background is as diverse as the discipline of bioethics is. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Theory from LUISS University, Rome. Since the beginning of my Ph.D., I have worked in <span class="bold">four continents</span> and <span class="bold">published in five.</span> Among other work experiences, I should mention that:
</p>
<ul>
<li>In 2009, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Ethox Centre at the University of Oxford,</li>
<li>In 2010 I spent a semester at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai.</li>
<li>In 2011, I was a Yale University and Hastings Center Visiting Scholar thanks to a Fulbright Scholarship.</li>
<li>Before my current positions, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Tel Aviv University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Monash University.</li>

<p>I love the multidisciplinarity and the numerous possibilities of this specific field of research fosters and inspires. For example, I’m a member of the Italian Society of Analytic Philosophy and the International Research Network on Religion and Democracy.</p>
<p>Hello everybody,<br><br> my name is Steffen Steinert, I studied Philosophy at the Technical University of Dresden (Germany), and the New School for Social Research, New York (USA). I obtained my Ph.D. at the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences, University of Munich. Before joining the Ethics and Philosophy of Technology section at TU Delft, I was a researcher in a project that explores the ethical, social and legal implications of brain-computer interfaces.</p>
<p>This diversity can also be seen in the numerous bioethical and biopolitical projects I am currently working on. A few examples include themes such as, human enhancement, hunger strikes and neuroethics.</p>

<p>My first book “Guantanamo and Other Cases of Enforced Medical Treatment - A Biopolitical Analysis” has received a good response from the public and, among other contexts, been recently discussed by international scholars in the Journal of Medical
Ethics. I am also looking forward to the discussion with you!
