The surveys include many open questions to look at the reasoning of people. In order to develop cross-cultural ethics we must examine the reasoning that people have. Academics are too often distant from the reasoning of ordinary people, so a survey is a useful additional to the instruments that are available to examine international bioethics.
If you are interested in joining in an international discussion you are invited to join in a forthcoming seminar and workshop - 19-21 Nov, in Fukui, Japan. Part of this seminar will be a workshop, which will consider international attitudes and policy concerning the question of what is a disease and what is not? Where do we draw the line between therapy and enhancement? What are neurological disorders and what is merely failing to meet the expectations of society or ourselves?
At the end of this newsletter is the continuation of a list of bioethics centres, that will accumulate throughout the year. Please send additions and omissions.
