It is an honor and a privilege to contribute to this Festschrift celebrating the contributions of H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr., to bioethics over the past four decades. Tris’ work has left an indelible mark on the modern field of bioethics that he helped to found. His prolific, highly original, and carefully argued scholarly writings continue to engage and challenge scholars around the globe. His tireless editorship of bioethics journals and books has enabled many hundreds of scholars to publish their own work and has greatly enriched the bioethics literature. His teaching and mentorship of graduate students and junior colleagues have brought scores of talented and dedicated professionals into the field. For all of these contributions, I am very grateful.
