Interdependence, Individuals, and Impacts for Bioethics: How Relations Shape Responsibility


Wednesday, March 22, 2023


12:00pm - 1:15pm


Ford Auditorium


The histories of bioethics are shaped by accounts of individuals and their relations. From relatedness and dependence through interconnection and interdependence, these accounts provide accounts of how our social, biological, technological, and informational relationships shape bioethical considerations of health, agency, and autonomy. Where do those histories direct us, in terms of bioethical responsibility?

Jonathan Beever, Ph.D., is an environmental philosopher focused on questions of ethics and digital technologies. He is currently an Associate Professor of Ethics and Digital Culture in the Department of Philosophy and the Texts & Technology Ph.D. Program at the University of Central Florida. His research seeks to understand and impact the ways in which we all relate to and value ecological relationships at the intersections of digital and “analog” environments. His work as a whole seeks to understand and impact the ways we relate to and value the rest of the natural world. See full bio HERE
