Robert Klitzman "The Ethics Police?" Book Discussion & Signing


Apr 06, 2015 - 6:00 p.m.


Columbia University Bookstore, 2922 Broadway, New York, NY, Room Lerner Hall Basement

In this intelligent, rigorous book, Klitzman looks at the morality of morality - at how the bodies set up to protect research subjects can end up injuring us all. This examination of our confused notions of safety, honesty, and transparency demonstrates that none of these is simple, and that in striving toward any one, we easily betray the others. It is a book about how seeking to do the right thing can lead to justice, and about how equally often it fails to do so.

This event is free and open to the public.
