Workshop: Philosophical Challenges of Modern Biology, 29 Oct. 2012, Ruhr University Bochum

The 2nd RUB-Workshop 'History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences' will bring together researchers in (epi-)genomics and philosophers of biology discussing issues like reductionism, modularity, and modeling in the life sciences. The talks are grouped around a lecture given by Giuseppe Testa from Milan. Giuseppe Testa is head of the Laboratory of Stem Cell Epigenetics and Co-founder of the PhD Program in Foundations and Ethics of the Life Sciences at the European Institute of Oncology (Milan). Despite his experimental studies in epigenetics of genome (re)programming, Testa’s philosophical studies focus on the interplay of science and culture, philosophical anthropology, bioethics, and biopolitics.

Further speakers are: Stephan Kopsieker (Bielefeld University), Jan Baedke (Ruhr University Bochum), Fabian Lausen (Bielefeld University), Dan Brooks (Bielefeld University).

Discussants: Fabrizzio Guerrero McManus (National University Mexico City), Marie Kaiser (University of Geneva), Helmut Pulte (Ruhr University Bochum), Christina Brandt (Ruhr University Bochum)
