Famous for his critical stance on the transhumanist utopia (Demain les posthumains : Le futur a-t-il encore besoin de nous ? in 2009 or L’Homme simplifié : Le syndrome de la touche étoile in 2012), Jean-Michel Besnier focuses his work on the philosophical and ethical impact of sciences and technologies on social representations. A member of the Ethics Committee of French National Research Center as well as of the UNESCO commission on ‘Sciences for Society’, he teaches philosophy at the Paris-Sorbonne university. His last book deals with neuro-sciences (Un cerveau très prometteur : Conversation autour des neurosciences, with Francis Brunelle and Florence Gazeau, 2015).
