The aim of this summit is to bring together up-and-coming and senior researchers working at the intersection of empirical and normative bioethics and experimental philosophy. Friday, October 4th is open to the public. Registration is required.

What is BioXphi?

Experimental Philosophical Bioethics (bioXphi) aims to be a distinctive field that will use traditional research methods of experimental philosophy and the empirical social and psychological sciences to investigate key premises in the arguments of various positions in theoretical bioethics. Though bioethicists have occasionally drawn on empirical data to supplement arguments and normative bioethical analysis, bioXphi by contrast seeks to uniquely probe the intuitions of patients and possible stakeholders in order to extrapolate—and make explicit wherever possible—the underlying cognitive and psychological processes that inform their responses. In this way, a major purpose of bioXphi is to make bioethical theorizing increasingly responsive to empirical insights in the formulation of clinical practice, institutional policy, and ongoing theoretical debate.
