Centre for New Questions in Ethics, Technology, and Society (CETS)


About | Structure | People | Research & Activities


Advances in science and their translation into technologies and technical capabilities have brought forth new and unfamiliar ethical questions. Indeed, it can be argued that they compel a fresh enquiry into the fundamental question of what constitutes a human being. Science and technology today have shaken up the traditional frameworks of this question: the nature and limits of a body, a gender, a community, society, to name just a few. New knowledge is giving rise to unprecedented situations whose very “ethicity”, to use the Belgian philosopher, Jean Ladrière’s, term, is obscured and rendered difficult to discern. The CETS aims at clarifying the new questions that have been created by technological innovation. Members of the CETS are dedicated to sharing their reflections on ethical and social questions created by cutting-edge technological change.
