Stuart Kelter interviews Sheldon Krimsky, professor of humanities and social sciences at Tufts University and a fellow of the Hastings Center, an independent bioethics research institution. His long and distinguished career has focused on the links between public policy and science and technology, environment and health, and ethics and values. His work stresses the importance of public understanding of science-related issues, and his many books for the nonspecialist attest to his commitment to providing the public with the best information available about such issues, often well ahead of the general media. Today’s interview will focus on his 2015 book, Stem Cell Dialogues: a philosophical and Scientific Inquiry Into Medical Frontiers.
