BNAS 2019 explores the ethical and legal problems in bioethics in the context of the new challenges generated by the scientific discoveries of the 21st century. The aim of the conference is to facilitate the multidisciplinary approach of bioethical issues by uniting specialists from bioethics and its connected fields through the four main subjects of the conference: bioethics and medical ethics; ethical aspects in biomedical technology and research; bioethical education; bioethical committees.
The medicine we know today has a history, and that history sets the terms for what we expect medicine to become in the future. What are the historical sources of contemporary medicine? What has been lost that should be recovered? What should be left behind? In particular, what do we know about the Hippocratic tradition? How has that tradition been taken up, modified, and developed in Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures? What resources, if any, does that tradition offer to practitioners today? What aspects of the medicine of the past should ground the medicine of the future?
The 2020 Conference on Medicine and Religion invites clinicians, scholars, clergy, students and others to take up these and other questions related to the intersection of medicine and religion. The conference encourages participants to consider these questions in light of religious traditions and practices, particularly, though not exclusively, those of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The conference is a forum for exchanging ideas from an array of disciplinary perspectives, from accounts of clinical practices to empirical research to scholarship in the humanities. ?
