Regarding his speaking style when talking about bioethics issues: "Much of my writing is in the narrative form, and the numerous talks I have given have been very well received, I believe, because I realize in them the very vital, personal interest all my listeners have in the issues and give each of them a kind of conceptual avatar that expresses the views they may hold but may not have thought through thoroughly."
