Human cooperation: past, present & future

The seminar Human Cooperation: Past, Present & Future is jointly organized by the research teams of the ETHICS laboratory. The first aim of the seminar is to unite researchers working across disciplines (history, philosophy, political science, economics, biology, anthropology) in order to speculate together about the psychological and environmental factors that bind societies together. The second objective is to improve our understanding of the ethical implications of social and technological phenomena that may affect human interactions, such as the transhumanist projects, human enhancement and the rise of artificial intelligence.
