Philosophy & sex by Robert Baker( Book )

27 editions published between 1975 and 2009 in English and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of Philosophy and Sex in 1975 took out of the closet a subject formerly off limits to open philosophical inquiry. This collection of contemporary philosophical essays on abortion, adultery, feminism, homosexuality, monogamy, perversion, and promiscuity brought together in a single volume a forthright and relatively nontechnical discussion of these issues accessible not only to philosophers and their students, but to nonprofessionals as well." "Greatly expanded and updated, the third edition of this book retains such classic essays as the Shulamith Firestone-Robert Solomon debates over love and feminism, and includes new selections on abortion; rape; same-sex marriage; pornography; and the conceptualization of gender, sexuality, and perversion."--Jacket

15 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge World History of Medical Ethics is the first comprehensive scholarly account of the global history of medical ethics. Offering original interpretations of the field by leading bioethicists and historians of medicine, it will serve as the essential point of departure for future scholarship in the field. The book reconceptualises the history of medical ethics through the creation of new categories, including the life cycle; discourses of religion, philosophy, and bioethics; and the relationship between medical ethics and the state, which includes a historical reexamination of the ethics of apartheid, colonialism, communism, health policy, imperialism, militarism, Nazi medicine, Nazi 'medical ethics', and research ethics. Also included are the first global chronology of persons and texts; the first concise biographies of major figures in medical ethics; and the first comprehensive bibliography of the history of medical ethics. An extensive index guides readers to topics, texts, and proper names

Before bioethics : a history of American medical ethics from the colonial period to the bioethics revolution by Robert Baker( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Bioethics narrates the history of American medical ethics from its colonial origins to current bioethical controversies over abortion, AIDS, animal rights, and physician-assisted suicide. This comprehensive history tracks the evolution of American medical ethics over four centuries, from colonial midwives and physicians' oaths to medical society codes, through the bioethics revolution. Applying the concept of "morally disruptive technologies," it analyzes the impact of the stethoscope on conceptions of fetal life and the criminalization of abortion, and the impact of the ventilator on our conception of death and the treatment of the dying. The narrative offers tales of those whose lives were affected by the medical ethics of their era: unwed mothers executed by puritans because midwives found them with stillborn babies; the unlikely trio-an Irishman, a Sephardic Jew and in-the-closet gay public health reformer-who drafted the American Medical Association's code of ethics but received no credit for their achievement, and the founder of American gynecology celebrated during his own era but condemned today because he perfected his surgical procedures on un-anesthetized African American slave women. The book concludes by exploring the reasons underlying American society's empowerment of a hodgepodge of ex-theologians, humanist clinicians and researchers, lawyers and philosophers-the bioethicists-as authorities able to address research ethics scandals and the ethical problems generated by morally disruptive technologies."--Jacket

Legislating medical ethics : a study of the New York State do-not-resuscitate law by Robert Baker( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can medical ethics be legislated? Can a complex bioethical question be definitively answered through legislation? In July 1987 the New York State legislature experimented with legislating medical ethics by amending the state's public health law to regulate `Do Not Resuscitate' orders. The consequent law was complex and remains controversial. This volume reviews both the background bioethical debates and the elements of the public policy making process that are essential to understanding New York's experience with the DNR law. It features debates between leading exponents and critics of the law; case studies that examine the impact of New York's DNR law on clinicians, hospitals and patients; and a review of all empirical studies of the law by their lead authors. Appended to the volume is the New York State DNR law and a comprehensive set of background documents. The co-editors, Robert Baker and Martin A. Strosberg, are both professors at Union College, Schenectady, New York. They have collaborated on many projects including, Rationing America's Medical Care: The Oregon Plan and Beyond (Brookings, 1992)

Development of a speciality paint for submarine interiors( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A water emulsion alkyd based paint was developed which is comparable to military formula 124/58 solvent based paint in the relevant aspects of military specification MIL-E-17970C and related aspects of Federal Test Method Standard No. 141. The water based paint is superior to the present solvent based system from the standpoint of non-flammability, lack of odor, and absence of toxic fumes. The paint is made by emulsifying a benzene solution of chlorinated alkyd resin and driers. Then, by vacuum distillation, the benzene is removed, leaving behind a dispersion of very fine particles in water. This dispersion is then mixed with an aqueous pigment dispersion to produce the finished paint
