The analysis of the ethical and philosophical aspects of scientific discoveries is the starting point of PHILOSOPHY AND SCIENCE CNIO-BANCO SABADELL FOUNDATION, a series of meetings in which scientists and philosophers meet at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) to debate on this issue and discuss the impact of advances in science in our society.
“The Long-term View”: Since the mid-1980s, we have entered an ecological and social crisis that is now undeniable. We are torn between a very worrying present and the uncertainty of how what we do now will affect the future of the planet and humanity. Science itself may be changing now in the wake of artificial intelligence and big data. Long-termism is a philosophical view concerned with the task of developing an ethical thinking that takes into account the beings of the future.
