What Does It Mean to Be Human? A Conversation with O. Carter Snead

January 26, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Believe it or not, this question is at the heart of so much that ails us. Our law and public policy can be hostile to the human person. O. Carter Snead wants to fix that. In What It Means to Be Human: The Case for the Body in Public Bioethics, Snead rallies us to a renewed humanity in the way we approach some of the most fundamental and controversial issues. It’s a plea for and presentation of coherence we are painfully currently lacking in practice.

O. Carter Snead is William P. and Hazel B. White Director of the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture, Professor of Law, and Concurrent Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. He is member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, the principal bioethics advisory board to Pope Francis, and a Fellow of the Hastings Center.

Snead will be in conversation with Kathryn Jean Lopez, senior fellow at the National Review Institute’s Center for Religion, Culture, and Civil Society, and friend of the Sheen Center.
