Title: Digital Twins and 'embodied autonomy‘: A short sketch on the relation of physical and digital bodies
Abstract: This talk is about the question of the relationship of a person's physical body to (their) digital bodies. I will present an argument for the importance of digital bodies as a component of embodied autonomy by engaging with current discussions about the role and significance of the corporeal body for questions of autonomy.
