Giving death a helping hand : physician-assisted suicide and public policy : an international perspective by Dieter Birnbacher( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If it comes to choosing between methods of last resort for severely suffering, physician-assisted suicide will probably prove more acceptable as a method of last resort than active euthanasia both to patients, to legislators and to the general public. From the perspective of patients, physician-assisted is a more unambiguous expression of the patient's autonomous will. From the legislator's perspective it seems less liable to misuse and abuse. And often the availability of assisted suicide, instead of shortening the life of a patient, has proved to prolong it. Public policy has begun to respond to this prospect. Notably in Switzerland and Germany, the attitudes of public bodies towards physician-assisted suicide are in a process of change, partly motivated by the wish to take the edge off the pressure for legalisation of active euthanasia. The present volume focuses on public policy issues related to physician-assisted suicide. It offers a detailed analysis of the current legal standing and practice of physician-assisted suicide in various countries and discusses the ethical principles underlying its legal and professional regulation. In addition, it contains a number of personal narratives by professionals who have for many years been involved in end-of-life issues

Utilitarianism, Liberty, and Representative government. by John Stuart Mill( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in German and English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Stuart Mill's Utilitarianism is a philosophical defence of utilitarianism, a moral theory stating that right actions are those that tend to promote overall happiness. The essay first appeared as a series of articles published in Fraser's Magazine in 1861; the articles were collected and reprinted as a single book in 1863. Mill discusses utilitarianism in some of his other works, including On Liberty and The Subjection of Women, but Utilitarianism contains his only sustained defence of the theory

Schopenhauer by Dieter Birnbacher( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in German and Dutch and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) ist ein Denker des Übergangs: Kein anderer Philosoph hat mit vergleichbarer Radikalität den optimistischen Grundzug der großen metaphysischen Systeme des Westens durchschaut und als realitätsfremd kritisiert, wie Dieter Birnbacher in seiner Einführung herausstellt. Vorstellungen wie die, dass "hinter" der Erfahrungswelt eine Welt vollkommener Ideen, ein gütiger Gott oder die "reine" Vernunft oder dass in der Geschichte ein Heils- oder Fortschrittsprinzip walte, werden von Schopenhauer schlicht als Wunschdenken abgetan und durch das ernüchternde Bild des Kreislaufs eines nicht heilbaren Unheils ersetzt

Tun und Unterlassen by Dieter Birnbacher( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in German and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieter Birnbacher erörtert detailliert und anhand zahlreicher Beispiele eine Grundfrage der Ethik: Gibt es einen prinzipiellen Unterschied zwischen "aktivem" Handeln und "passivem" Geschehenlassen? In der Rechtsprechung, aber auch im spontanen moralischen Urteil findet sich die Tendenz, Handlungen kritischer zu beurteilen als Unterlassungen - vor allem wenn wir uns mit negativen Folgen konfrontiert sehen. Aber gilt dies generell und grundsätzlich? (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)

Negative Kausalität by Dieter Birnbacher( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term 'negative causality' denotes a highly controversial problem in metaphysics: Can negative entities such as the absence or the non-occurrence of certain events be causes or causal factors' This question is situated at the intersection of a series of fundamental questions that transcend disciplinary boundaries, questions concerning not only the nature of causality, actions, and events, but also the relationship between causality and moral and legal responsibility. This book is intended for philosophers, legal theorists, and theorists of science. Dieter Birnbacherund David Hommen, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf
