William Hurlbut: The Science and Politics of Stem Cells: Is There a Way Forward?
Socrates in the City
Distinguished Fellow of The Center for Bioethics, physician, and Consulting Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University Medical Center William Hurlbut explores how dramatic advances in molecular biology and human biology have resulted in inquiry that raises questions about the relationship between the material form and the moral meaning of developing life. After unpacking the scientific arguments vs. the ethical, social, and political conflicts, Dr. Hurlbut proposes a way forward in this remarkably still-relevant lecture from a 2009 Socrates in the City event in New York City.The post William Hurlbut: The Science and Politics of Stem Cells: Is There a Way Forward? first appeared on Socrates in the City.
