Lecture: When is enough, enough?

Should we continue to extend life at any cost? Just because we can do something to keep someone alive, should we? Is it strange that people continue to fear death, even when the person at death’s door is elderly or terminally ill?

As part of a joint one-day conference organised by the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion at the University of Cambridge, and the Woolf Institute, I delivered a lecture on how to die well in age of new possibilities in February 2018. You can watch it below.
