Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi guys! I'm a freshman from south Georgia. I'm currently thinking about majoring in physics or computer science, but besides that I like learning about philosophy, Chinese, weird diseases (a childhood full of House sigh), and Game of Thrones! The last one isn't really an academic topic, but still important. Outside of school I like to bike, go to dance performances, and chat with friends. Looking forward to meeting you! Feel free to reach out @dqi

H272: The Ethics of Biological Immortality in Splash Spring 15 (Apr. 25, 2015)
Imagine a disease suddenly affects everyone on Earth - causing 100,000 people to die each day. Within thirty years, one in seven people in the world will have died of this - one billion people. If this were the case, it would seem that we would be obligated to try to fight this disease and save lives. However, around 100,000 people die each day due to aging. Are we obligated to fight aging? Supposing that we could be biologically immortal, should we allow humans to become so? In this class, we will introduce students to a new way of looking at philosophical arguments and discuss these dilemmas and more.
