The Story of Bioethics: From Seminal Works to Contemporary Explorations

By Eran P. Iuein; Jennifer K. Walter | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This volume developed out of a conference held at Georgetown University in honor of the thirtieth anniversary of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. The conference, and hence this book, would not have been possible without financial and other support from a number of individuals, departments, and schools at Georgetown University, including then Provost Dorothy Brown and the Office of the Provost, Dean Jane D. McAuliffe and Georgetown College, Wayne Davis and the Department of Philosophy, Dean Judith Areen and the Georgetown University Law Center, Dean Stephen Ray Mitchell and the Georgetown Medical Center's Medical Student Parents' Council, and most importantly, Madison Powers and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. The support provided by Madison and the administrative burden shared by Linda Powell and Sally Schofield were instrumental to the success of the conference. We would also like to thank the respondents to the original papers presented at the conference: John Collins Harvey, M.D., Ph.D.; Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D.; Carol M. Spicer, Ph.D.; Francis Kane, Ph.D.; David D. DeGrazia, Ph.D.; Margaret Little, Ph.D.; James J. Walter, Ph.D.; Jeffrey Kahn, Ph.D.; John P. Langan, S.J., Ph.D.; and Daniel Sulmasy, O.EM., M.D., Ph.D. for engaging the participants in dialogue and challenging them in insightful ways.

We would like to extend our utmost gratitude to both John P. Langan and James J. Walter for serving as patient and thoughtful advisers throughout every aspect of the conception and execution of this volume. Additionally, we would like to acknowledge the many contributors to this volume who shared their expertise and patience with their novice editors. We hope this book stands as a concrete sign of the faith these contributors and Georgetown University Press's director Richard Brown placed in two bioethics graduate students. We would also like to acknowledge the Graduate Biomedical Committee, the Georgetown Medical School, and the Philosophy Department for supporting the M.D./Ph.D. in bioethics program at Georgetown.

Finally, we would like to acknowledge the continued and unfaltering support of our families and friends. Your continued interest in our finishing this volume has made it possible and your continued interest in us has made it enjoyable. Eran would particularly like to thank Nilana Gunasekaran.
