: Prof. Dr. Hub Zwart (1960) studied philosophy and psychology at Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands). In 2000 he was appointed as full professor of philosophy at the Faculty of Science (RU Nijmegen). In 2003, he became director of the Centre for Society and Genomics (CSG) and in 2005, Director of the Institute for Science in Society. His research focuses on philosophical dimensions of biosciences (synthetic biology, nanomedicine, brain research) which are addressed from a continental philosophical perspective (dialectics, phenomenology, psychoanalysis) while special attention is given to genres of the imagination (novels, theatre, poetry, movies) as windows into emerging techno-scientific research fields.
