Socialism 2019

July 04, 2019

After a historical overview of the debate on biological determinism, updated with a more contemporary questioning of the concept of race in general, we will talk about the social and philosophical impact of new technologies that are being proposed for engineering humans at the embryonic stage, sometimes termed “techno-eugenics."

Save the date! Socialism 2020 will be July 2-5, 2020 in Chicago. Visit for updates.
