The book even considers the special relationship between the surgeon and patients who are family members or friends

Readings in the philosophy of religion : an analytic approach by Baruch A Brody( Book )

17 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A unique, new anthology in the philosophy of religion, presenting the analytical viewpoint. The selections show that a real affinity exists between recent analytic research in the philosophy of religion and much of the traditional writings by medieval theologians and the rationalist and empiricist philosophers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The author systematically introduces you to the major classical and contemporary issues in the philosophy of religion. This anthology views the total field, reflecting the impact on philosophical argumentation of the recent advances in metaphysical analysis, philosophy of logic, and philosophical psychology. The author integrates articles by lesser known individuals with standard works. He includes areas often neglected in philosophy of religion anthologies, such as prayer and ritual, creation and miracles, morality and religion, and foreknowledge and human freedom. Introductions to each section pinpoint important issues." [Book jacket]
Altering nature by B. Andrew Lustig( )

51 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two volumes of Altering Nature consider the complex ways that concepts of 'nature' and 'the natural' are understood and the relevance of those understandings to discussions of biotechnology. Volume One, Concepts of 'Nature' and 'The Natural' in Biotechnology Debates, offers nuanced accounts of the ways that nature is invoked and interpreted, both descriptively and prescriptively, by different disciplines, including perspectives from spirituality and religion, philosophy, science and medicine, law and economics, and aesthetics. In the context of that broad discussion, Volume Two, Religion, Biotechnology, and Public Policy, reviews recent religious and ethical analyses of four specific areas of biotechnology: assisted reproduction, genetic therapy and enhancement, human-machine incorporation, and biodiversity. It identifies and explores the richer normative themes that inform particular debates and suggests ways that policy choices in biotechnology may be illuminated by devoting greater attention to religious perspectives
Mental illness : law and public policy by Baruch A Brody( Book )

17 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume developed from and around a series of six lectures sponsored by Rice University and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in the Fall of 1976. Though these lectures on the concepts of mental health, mental illness and personal responsibility, and the social treatment of the mentally ill were given to general audiences in Houston and Galveston, they were revised and expanded to produce six extensive formal essays by Dan Brock, Jules Coleman, Joseph Margolis, Michael Moore, Jerome Neu, and Rolf Sartorius. The five remaining contributions by Daniel Creson, Corinna Delkeskamp, Edmund Erde, James Speer, and Stephen Wear were in various ways engendered by the debates occasioned by the original six lectures. In fact, the majority of the last five contributions emerged from informal dis· cussions occasioned by the original lecture series. The result is an interlocking set of essays that address the law and public policy insofar as they bear on the treatment of the mentally ill, special atten· tion being given to the defmition of mental illness, generally and in the law, to the issues of the bearing of mental incompetence in cases of criminal and civil liability, and to the issue of involuntary commitment for the purpose of treatment or for institutional care. There is as well a critical defense of Thomas Szasz's radical proposal that mental illnesses are best understood as problems in living, not as diseases

Essays on the active powers of the human mind by Thomas Reid( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Para Reid, esta expresión es sinónimo de una capacidad innata a la naturaleza humana, que la hace poseedora de principios incuestionables, compartidos por el filósofo y por el individuo común, mediante los cuales la mente aprehende las verdades básicas del pensamiento y de las cosas. Los elementos primarios del conocimiento están ahí y no cabe cuestionar su existencia; los datos de nuestra conciencia original han de presumirse verdaderos

Moral theory and moral judgments in medical ethics by Baruch A Brody( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 1997 in English and Japanese and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Principles. A second solution to this problem is to develop a scale for weighing the significance of the conflicting principles in a given case and for concluding which action should be adopted because it is supported by the weightier considerations in that case. Such a solution seems more realistic than the lexical ordering approach, but the development of such a scale is a problematic task. Still other, more complex solutions are possible. Which is the best solution to this problem of conflicting principles of bioethics? We need a moral theory to answer that question. This is the first reason for concluding that the principles of bioethics are not the true foundations of justified judgment in bioethics. What is the problem of the unclear scope and implications of the principles of bioethics and how can an appeal to moral theory help deal with that problem? The scope of a bioethical principle is the range of cases in which it applies. The implications of a bioethical principle are the conclusions to be derived from that principle in those cases in which it applies. It is clear from a review of the discussions in bioethics that there are major unclarities about the scope and implications of each of the principles. Consider, for example, the principle of autonomy

Ethical issues in drug testing, approval, and pricing : the clot-dissolving drugs by Baruch A Brody( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although most developed countries have extensive regulations governing the testing, approval and marketing of new drugs, there are major gaps in these regulations. In this compelling new volume, Dr. Brody uses the example of the development of thrombolytic drugs to identify several such gaps. Issues addressed include the use of placebo control groups in clinical trials, the importance of determining the type of consent that should be obtained for emergency research, and ways to avoid conflicts of interest in clinical trials. He also discusses topics such as deciding to continue clinical trials or to approve a drug quickly, maintaining a proper balance between efficacy and safety in drug approval, the pricing of new drugs and considering prices when ordering drugs. This work offers the first comprehensive analysis from an ethical perspective of the entire drug development process, and it does so while comparing American and European approaches to the process
Taking issue : pluralism and casuistry in bioethics by Baruch A Brody( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When it comes to morality as it is practiced in medicine, Brody makes clear that the ethical issues are never as simple as black and white - that there are myriad factors and fine nuances that can and should challenge decision making as it is commonly practiced in difficult medical cases. In this collection, delving thoughtfully and systematically into methodology, research ethics, clinical ethics, and Jewish medical ethics, he tackles thorny life-and-death questions head-on and fearlessly. He casts a light into all the corners of end-of-life decisions - a field in which he has exemplary credentials - while illuminating a new understanding of morality and ethics." "The introduction outlines much of Brody's approach, defines the terminology used, and contrasts his ethical positions with much of the competing literature, Taking Issue will be invaluable to students and scholars in medical ethics, bioethics, and the philosophy of medicine." "Baruch A. Brody is the Leon Jaworski Professor Biomedical Ethics and director of the Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy at Baylor College of Medicine. He is also a professor of philosophy at Rice University and director of the Ethics program at the Methodist Hospital."--Jacket
