Philosophy Wire: Science: When the solution is the problem.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2018-02-20]: Science created seedless fruit with gene editing so as to reduce our reliance on bees which are going extinct. [1] There are times when the solution is the problem. If we did not have the capability to do something like this, we would just think of saving the bees. But this is modern science anyway: Unwanted solutions which turn out to be problems on their own. Think of a world where people live for ever with the help of science. Think and compare this to a world where people died. Open your eyes… Do they really look alive? Listen to the silence. The bees are dead.
