Bioethicists Conference in Central Europe.
The conference of the Bioethicists society in Central Europe will follow up on the International Teaching Week. “We were able to get some truly interesting guests for this conference. Prof. Vicini will be lecturing about the relationship between morality and neuroscience, while Prof. Virt will be sharing his experience about how the European Union will develop its views concerning ethical questions. Further themes worthy of mention include the political situation in Turkey (Can Zeyrek) or ethics in film (Marek Lis). Peter McCormic, a long-time co-worker with the theological faculty, will also be there and will deal in his lecture with the question of how to ethnically deal with extremely poor people,” Opatrný added.
