Think&Drink - Stranded: Engineering Our DNA

  • Front Street Taproom 614 Main Ave Fargo United States (map)

Think&Drink is a Humanities happy hour series that combines good conversation and great beer. Join our content experts for a dynamic dialogue set in a great local bar.

Suggestions that our Homo sapiens germ line can benefit from a bit of genetic engineering immediately raises specters of eugenic programs gone horribly awry. It might be the case, however, that some genetic engineering on humans is morally permissible, and in a few instances, obligatory, especially for parents and societies who must pursue future generations’ best interests. Based on normally uncontentious premises – no harm, enabling thriving, and promoting social utility - there a strong argument can be made to support a duty to genetically engineer future generations' lives and deaths.
Discussion led by Dennis Cooley
