The Edge of the Organic: Philosophical Issues of Synthetic Morphology

EasyChair Preprint no. 5827

4 pagesDate: June 16, 2021


Bioengineering is progressing vigorously, with biomedical applications already within our grasp and many more on the horizon. More profoundly, and perhaps unexpectedly, are the deep philosophical and conceptual implications raised by bioengineering, particularly synthetic morphology - the subdiscipline concerned with the creation of novel living forms. Advancement in this field is necessitating a radical reconsideration of some of our commonplace assumptions, as well as providing a unique opportunity for discovery, creativity, and consilience between biology, engineering, and computer science.
