Welcome to the penultimate episode of season 1 of the podcast! For our second to last offering, we have Stephen Okey’s conversation with Tobias Winright of Saint Louis University. They met up at this past summer’s CTSA convention in Milwaukee, WI, where they talked about how Prof. Winright’s background in law enforcement shaped his work in moral theology, his newer work in health care and bioethics, and what it means to be a public intellectual. They also look at his love of puns and Marvel comics!
Tobias Winright is the Hubert Mäder Endowed Associate Professor of Health Care Ethics at the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University and an Associate Professor of Theological Ethics in the Department of Theological Studies at SLU. He previously taught at Simpson College in Indianola, IA and Walsh University in North Canton, OH. He earned his AA in Liberal Arts from St. Petersburg Junior College, his BA in Political Science from University of South Florida, an MDiv from Duke University Divinity School, and an MA and PhD in Moral Theology from the University of Notre Dame. Widely published, he has written and edited several volumes, including After the Smoke Clears: The Just War Tradition and Post War Justice (Orbis, 2010, co-authored with Mark Allman) and Green Discipleship: Catholic Theological Ethics and the Environment (Anselm Academic, 2011). Most recently, he and Laurie Johnston co-edited Can War Be Just in the 21st Century? (Orbis, 2015). His work can also be found on the Catholic Moral Theology and Political Theology Today blogs.
The Daily Theology Podcast was very fortunate this summer to record several conversations at the 70th annual convention of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA). This is the third of four such conversations, and we are grateful to the CTSA for making these possible.
