Human Perspectives in Health Sciences and Technology

Series Ed.: Bertolaso, Marta

ISSN: 2661-8915

The Human Perspectives in Health Sciences and Technology series publishes volumes that delve into the coevolution between technology, life sciences, and medicine. The distinctive mark of the series is a focus on the human, as a subject and object of research. The series provides an editorial forum to present both scientists’ cutting-edge proposals in biomedical sciences that are able to deeply impact our human biological, emotional and social lives, and thought-provoking theoretical reflections by philosophers and scientists alike on how those scientific achievements affect not only our lives, but also the way we understand and conceptualize how we produce knowledge and advance science, so contributing to refine the image of ourselves as human knowing subjects. The series addresses ethical issues in a unique way, i.e. an ethics seen not as an external limitation on science, but as internal to scientific practice itself; as well as an ethics characterized by a positive attitude towards science, trusting the history of science and the resources that, in science, may be promoted in order to orient science itself towards the common good for the future. This is a unique series suitable for an interdisciplinary audience, ranging from philosophers to ethicists, from bio-technologists to epidemiologists as well  to public health policy makers.
