Lecture at kansai University

Today I attended a lecture by Professor Paolo Becchi at Kansai University. He talked about a brief history of brain death and organ transplantation in Italy. He also talked about the philosophy of Hans Jonas and his attitude toward brain death in 1992, when a pregnant woman became brain dead in Germany. He said he thinks highly of Japanese law on brain death. This is the second time I have met him. He said he is in a minority on this issue in Italy...

new paper on brain death was uploaded.
