Description:

Jerry Dworkin, Brady Distinguished Visiting Professor 2016 will discuss the challenging question about medically-assisted dying.

Professor Dworkin received a BS in Mathematics from the City College of New York, an MA from the Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science at the University of California at Berkeley, and a Ph.D in Philosophy from UC Berkeley. He has taught at Harvard, MIT, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of California at Davis. He works in moral, political and legal philosophy. Some of his major concerns are the nature and value of autonomy, the principles that govern what the state may make criminal, when paternalistic restrictions are permissible, and medically-assisted dying. He has served as editor of the journal Ethics. He has been a Visiting Fellow of All Souls, Oxford, and Visiting Scholar at the Australian National University, the Hastings Center, the Bellagio Study Center, and the Center for Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health.
