What Makes Killing Wrong? And Why It Matters.

October 8, 2012

Hour 2:           If killing is wrong, what makes vital organ transplantation – as it is currently practiced – compatible with morality? We’ll discuss the issue this hour with Walter Sinnott-Armstrong [1], the Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics in the Department of Philosophy and the Kenan Institute for Ethics [2] at Duke University. He’ll deliver the lecture “What Makes Killing Wrong? And Why It Matters” at UT Southwestern Ethics Grand Rounds [3] tomorrow at noon.
