Craig Paterson

Topanga, California, United States


Home page:

Contemporary philosopher with a special interest in bioethics. Educated at Glasgow
Caledonian University, Scotland; University of Edinburgh, Scotland; University of York,
England; Saint Louis University, USA. He has previously held teaching appointments at
Saint Louis University, USA and Providence College, USA. He is currently an
independent scholar. Paterson is a significant contributor to contemporary discourse on
biomedical ethics in the natural law tradition, especially in the areas of assisted suicide,
euthanasia and killing and letting die. He adopts a revised non-naturalist approach to
natural law ethics influenced by the practical reasoning approach of Aquinas, the
intuitionalism of G.E. Moore, and others. He was appointed an Honorary Colonel in the
Alabama State Militia by the Governor.
