Face Extinction via Ethical Technology on 11/16/09

In his talk at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, philosopher and
bioethicist Julian Savulescu, Uehiro Professor of Practical Ethics at
the University of Oxford., examines the nature of human beings as
products of evolution, in particular their limited altruism, limited
co-operative instincts and limited ability to take account of the
future consequences of actions. He argues that humans’ biology and
psychology are unfit for the kind of society we live in and we must
either alter our political institutions, severely restrain our
technology or change our nature. Or face annihilation by our own
design. Festival of Dangerous Ideas, Sydney Opera House, October 2009
