Developments: the concept of ‘naturalness’

The Nuffield Council on Bioethics is undertaking a number of evidence gathering activities examining how the terms ‘natural’, ‘unnatural’ and ‘nature’ are used in public and political debates on a range of bioethics topics, including reviewing media articles, political debates, reports from civil society and scientific organisations and previous Council reports – find out more.

The Council has published a review of academic research on public perceptions of naturalness. Read the blog post ‘What do you mean ‘it’s unnatural’? by Project Officer Anna Wilkinson

The Council is working with performance poetry organisation Apples and Snakes to inform the project and engage a wider audience in the debate.
