He is the editor of several books, including Contemporary Controversies in Catholic Bioethics, Star Trek and Philosophy, Star Wars and Philosophy and The Ultimate Star Wars and Philosophy.

In this episode we discuss Jason’s new book, The Nature of Human Persons, whether humans have a soul, the relationship of the mind and body, what constitutes death, the possibility of resurrection, and the possibility of alien life.
