Profile: Anthony Wrigly
Sr Lecturer in Ethics
My research engages with issues in applied ethics, especially bioethics, from a philosophical perspective; often linking issues in metaphysics with problems of ethics. My major research topics include questions on the margins of life (reproductive and end of life ethics), personhood, concepts in bioethics (the nature of disease, illness and vulnerability), moral authority and autonomy, extended decision-making, and the nature of expertise in ethics. I also engage in the critical ethical evaluation of legislation and policy on matters of biomedical and research ethics.
