This lecture series presents a wide array of philosophical debates that arise as the result of recent scientific research. To this end, we will be inviting experts from different domains within Ethics and the Philosophy of Science, who will raise questions such as: “What is an organism?”, “What is a psychological disorder?”, and “Can machines think?”. Our discussants shall proffer possible philosophical responses to these questions.
