Baroness Mary Warnock was an English philosopher of morality, education, and mind, and a writer on existentialism. She had a formidable reputation in bioethics and healthcare policy in Britain and is best known for chairing an inquiry whose report formed the basis of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990. As chairwoman, she established a consensus on the bioethical issues of human fertilisation and experimentation on embryos. Of her time at St Swithuns she recalled “All the cleverest girls were doing classics and I was jolly well going to be one of them”.
