Professor Jonathan D. Moreno

Jonathan D. Moreno is the David and Lyn Silfen University Professor of Ethics at the University of Pennsylvania where he is a Penn Integrates Knowledge (PIK) professor. At Penn he is also Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, of History and Sociology of Science, and of Philosophy. In 2025 MIT Press will publish his newest book, “Absolutely Essential”: Bioethics and the Rules-Based International Order. Moreno is a member of the National Academy of Medicine, a fellow the Hastings Center, and a member of the Committee on Human Rights of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine. He has served as a staff member or adviser to many governmental and non-governmental organizations, including three U.S. presidential commissions, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the UNESCO International Bioethics Committee. In 2008-09 he served on President Barack Obama’s transition team. In 2018 the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities presented Moreno with its Lifetime Achievement Award. The American Journal of Bioethics has called him “the quietly most interesting bioethicist of our time.” Abstract: The field that came to be known as bioethics in the late 1960’s is an integral part of the rules-based international order intentionally developed in the aftermath of World War II. The norms and institutions intended to help avoid a third world war are now being challenged on many fronts. In this talk Professor Moreno will explain the core thesis of his forthcoming book, making the case that bioethics will need to adapt to a revised world order.
