Transhumanism and governance: A possible connection between genetic engineering and cybernetics
In recent months, the development of technology that could be used to edit the human genome has increasingly sparked bioethical debate over the question of how these methods should be regulated in a clinical context. However, some experts believe there is sufficient demand for disease prevention or trait selection to ensure that research into human germline editing will continue regardless of whether any binding regulations are implemented. Therefore, normative deliberations should additionally be informed through descriptive ethics methods. We will present the foundation of a pilot project aimed at assessing stakeholder’s values regarding germline editing. The elevance of this type of questioning and research methodology for the field of cybernetics will hopefully be answered through this conference.
