Weil es geht. Hacking the body

In meinem Beitrag zur Tagung „Parahuman“ im Rahmen des Forschungsprojektes „Anthropofakte. Schnittstelle Mensch“ des deutschen Hygiene-Museums Dresden untersuche ich die Hacker-Ethik und ihre Anwendbarkeit auf Bodyhacking, Selbstmodifikation, Human Enhancement und Cyborgism.

Ethical Issues in Cyborg Technology: Diversity and Inclusion

Abstract: Progress has reached the point where cyborg technology is leaving the sphere of mere science fiction. Whereas society as a whole formed a symbiosis with technology long ago, individuals are now starting to merge with technology as well. The effects can already be studied by looking at the examples of smartphones, computers and the Internet. The idea of ‘repairing’ humans, medical implants more sensitive than our natural, human faculties and even non-medical implants raise a lot of ethical questions, and require the concept of inclusion to be re-thought.
