PUBLIC LECTURE with Distinguished Ethicist: Medicine is Destroying Pastoral Care
Date:March 25, 2013
The St. Ambrose Society at St. Vladimir's Seminary is sponsoring a free and public lecture titled "On the Corpse and the Chaplain: How Medicine is Destroying Pastoral Care" with Jeffrey P. Bishop M.D., Ph.D. The lecture will be held at 7:30 p.m. on the Feast of the Annunciation, Monday, March 25th in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium in the John G. Rangos Family building on the Seminary's Yonkers campus. The lecture will be followed by a light reception hosted by the Society, which is a student-run, pro-life group at the Seminary.
An Orthodox Christian, Dr. Bishop teaches medical ethics and philosophy at Saint Louis University, where he holds the Tenet Endowed Chair in Health Care Ethics and directs the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics. His scholarly work has focused on the historical, political, and philosophical conditions that underpin contemporary medical and scientific practices and theories. As an author, Dr. Bishop has published his work in medical, philosophical, and theological journals and has addressed a wide array of topics from enhancement technologies to clinical ethics consultation and medical humanities. His first book, The Anticipatory Corpse: Medicine, Power, and the Care of the Dying, is a philosophical history of the care of the dying, and was published by the University of Notre Dame Press.
In other professional activities, Dr. Bishop also serves on the editorial boards of The Journal of Medicine and Philosophy and Christian Bioethics, and he is an assistant editor of the "Philosophy and Medicine" series published by Springer.
We warmly welcome you to our campus for this event. To accommodate our friends who cannot be with us, the lecture will be live-streamed from the St. Ambrose Society Website, and will also be available as a podcast.
