Anissimov shares a story from Anders Sandberg about homeopaths. Homeopathy is obviously bunk, but it always makes me ask the following question:
How much testing has actually been done on how we can increase the placebo effect? Psychosomatic benefits are still benefits.
How much better does a given medicine work when combined with the most conducive placebo effect environment?
Bioethics is controversial.
No one endorses the ideas or concepts explored here, not even me.
You will develop a strong opinion about something you find here. I want to hear it. Philosophy is a conversation.
