Peer Into The Playbill

A panel of special guests discuss ideas and issues in the playbill.

Ethical Medicine

Since its publication over 200 years ago, Frankenstein has been read as a cautionary tale of the dangers of creation and experimentation. What seems to drive most contemporary critics who invoke “playing God” is a fear of the unintended consequences of scientific discoveries and new technologies. In a conversation moderated by this season's Mary Shelley, Laura Condlln, join Bioethicist Dr. Ann Heesters, Dr. Kalina Kamenova from the Canadian Institute for Genomics and Society and Dr. Brian Goldman host of CBC's White Coat Black Art to consider the complicated ethics of medicine and science.
