Abstract:

"Central to its focus is an exploration of the ways in which both modern medicine and bioethical debates are shaped by philosophical assumptions and commitments. It provides an extensive introduction to moral theory and the principles of bioethics, and each chapter includes a philosophical reflection that provides in-depth analysis of relevant philosophical topics. Each chapter begins with a description of a landmark case, and contains original case studies for student analysis. In addition, a method for analyzing case studies is presented. The book also includes short excerpts of significant bioethical writings by historical and contemporary thinkers, as well as recommendations for further reading.

Balancing Canadian content with an international perspective, and connecting theoretical considerations to practical ethical conflicts, this groundbreaking book is well suited to a variety of teaching styles in philosophy, medicine, health sciences, and related disciplines.

Topics include ethical theories and ethical tools, distributive justice, health care professional-patient relationships, medical research, reproductive technologies, genetics and cloning, abortion and maternal-fetal conflicts, brain death and organ transplantation, death and dying, and medical paradigms and non-standard treatment."--Pub. desc.
