Biotechnology: Making People “Better than Well?” (with John McClean)
What kinds of things constitute biotechnological enhancement? What’s the difference between correcting disease and enhancing traits? How does the concept of our resurrection body help us understand where we draw lines and limits on these technologies? Join Scott as we tackle these questions and more with our guest Dr. John McClean, author, theologian and Vice Principal of Christ College, Sydney Australia.
John McClean is Vice Principal of Christ College and teaches in the areas of Christian Thought focussing on Systematic Theology and Ethics. He is the convenor of the Gospel, Society and Culture Committee of the Presbyterian Church of New South Wales and he writes a regular ethics column in the Pulse, the Presbyterian Church of New South Wales magazine.
