William B. Hurlbut , M.D.
William B. Hurlbut is a physician and consulting professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University Medical Center. After receiving his undergraduate and medical training at Stanford, he completed postdoctoral studies in theology and medical ethics, studying with Robert Hamerton-Kelly, Dean of the Chapel at Stanford, and subsequently with Louis Bouyer of the Institut Catholique de Paris. In addition to teaching at Stanford, he served for eight years on the President's Council on Bioethics. His primary areas of interest involve the ethical issues associated with advancing biomedical technology, the biological basis of moral awareness, and studies in the integration of theology and philosophy of biology. He is the author of numerous publications on science and ethics, including the co-edited volume Altruism and Altruistic Love: Science, Philosophy, and Religion in Dialogue (2002), and "Science, Religion, and Human Spirit" in the Oxford Handbook of Science and Religion (2008).
