Bioethicsy Stuff at Yale
A couple of things for folks who might be in New Haven: The Bioethics Center's sister-institution, the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, is screening "Green Fire," a film on the life of environmentalist Aldo Leopold (author of "A Sand County Almanac"), tonight at 6. There'll be a reception and what looks to be a very fine panel discussion. Details are here. The event is being hosted by the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (from which Leopold graduated in '09), with cosponsorship from the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology, the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, the Yale Divinity School, the Environmental Film Festival at Yale, and the Center for Humans and Nature. Another sister institution, the Program for Biomedical Ethics at Yale Medical School, is hosting an event on Transplant Ethics on Wednesday evening; details here. And finally, look at our front page to find out about Hal Herzog's Oct. 27 address to our Animal Ethics group on "Moral Inconsistency, Psychology, and Animal Ethics," and David Chalmers' November 4 talk to our Technology and Ethics group on "The Singularity: A Philosophical Analysis."
