On the latest Commonweal podcast, Paul Lauritzen interviews William B. Hurlbut, physician and consulting professor at Stanford's Neuroscience Institute. Hurlbut's main area of interest involves the ethical issues associated with advancing biomedical technology, the biological basis of moral awareness, and studies of the integration of theology and philosophy of biology. He has served on the President's Council on Bioethics since 2002, and is the author of "Altered Nuclear Transfer," a proposed technological solution to the moral controversy over embryonic stem-cell research.
