Nicolae Morar coedits new book on bioethics
Nicolae Morar, collaborating with Jonathan Beever, has edited his first collection of essays, entitled Perspectives in Bioethics, Science, and Public Policy. The book brings nine philosophers, political and natural scientists, and bioethicists together to explore contemporary moral controversies ranging from animals’ experience of pain to the ethics of climate change to nanotechnology. Written for a diverse audience, the book will make its debut in May 2013.
Learn more about the collection at the Purdue University Press’ website.
Nicolae Morar is a 2012-2013 Faculty Fellow in the Department of Philosophy and in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Oregon. He recently received his doctoral degree from Purdue University with a thesis analyzing the ways in which current biotechnologies are altering traditional conceptions of human nature. He is currently working on two critical projects, one concerning the role of biology and genetics in bioethics, and the other on the normative role of biodiversity in conservation debates (with Brendan Bohannan and Ted Toadvine).
