j'ai redigé mon oral sur la notion de progrès, et j'aimerais avoir quelques commentaires ainsi que quelques corrections éventuelles.
Toute aide est la bienvenue.
Hello, so today I will deal with the notion of progress. First, I will give a brief definition of progres. Progress is an idea that the world and the society can evove positively in therms of science, technologie, modernization, living conditions, ect, .. However the idea of progress is still debated between those who consider that it's beneficial and those for whom it's harmful.
That's why, during my presentation, I will study this question : Should we fear progress ?
First, we mustn't forger that progress is essential to envolve. Indeed, History is made of progress and evolution, that have allowed the world to be what it is today.
For example, we can deal with the social progress. One hundred years ago, America was segragated. Black people were considered inferior to white, but thanks to progress encouraged by soe heroes like Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks, america is now better and fairer.
Moreover, now medecine improvement allows us to live longer and in better health, with for exemple, transplantation, chimio therapy, ect, ..
Finally, technological progress improve our life everyday for exemple with car, phone, computer, internet, even with dishwasher !
But progress is also stongly criticized, and some person consider it as useless and even harmfull for humans
Indeed, uncontroled progress could be unethical and dangerous for humanity.
In the movie "Welcome to Gataca" which takes place in the future, genetics progress allows parents to choose some caracteristics of their furur baby. Because of this choice, the "genetic discrimination" will dominate the society. All the persons conceived naturally will be rejected.
It's in that way that Science and Technology have led to a world without emotions , values and freedom.Now, in some LA clinics, you can choose your baby gender. In a document studying in class, we saw that this practice is unethical, and maybe represent a limit of progres.
On top of that, the willingness of scientific to create robot more and more powerfull and functional can represent a threat for Humanity. On the extract untittled Man Vs Machine, we discover a robot smarter that its own creator. But, if robot could surpass humans, could they dominate us ?
In the movie I.ROBOT, one of them took the control of all of them. And, in a society whete robot are everywhere, humans have to fight against a new form of revolution : powerfull, smart and huge.
To conclude, we can note than progress is essential for Humans, but it should be strictly controled. Because, even if, the idea is positive, the utilisation isn't necessarily.
