Undue risk : secret state experiments on humans by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Undue Risk, Moreno presents the first comprehensive history of the use of human subjects in atomic, biological, and chemical warfare experiments from World War II to the twenty-first century. From the courtrooms of Nuremberg to the battlefields of the Gulf War, Undue Risk explores a variety of government policies and specific cases, including plutonium injections into unwitting hospital patients, U.S. government attempts to recruit Nazi medical scientists, the subjection of soldiers to atomic blast fallout, secret LSD and mescaline studies, and the feeding of irradiated oatmeal to children. It is also the first book to go behind the scenes and reveal the government's struggle with the ethics of human experimentation and the evolution of agonizing policy choices on unfamiliar moral terrain."--Jacket
In the wake of terror : medicine and morality in a time of crisis by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The war on terrorism and the threat of chemical and biological weapons have brought a new urgency to already complex moral and bioethical questions. In the wake of terror presents thought-provoking essays on many of the troubling issues facing American society, written by experts from the fields of medicine, health care policy, law, political science, history, philosophy, and theology. One of the first potential casualties of catastrophic circumstances is civil liberties. In the past, medical experiments conducted for national security purposes have violated ethical standards, and this book questions whether current policy provides sufficient safeguards against further abuses. It also focuses on public health issues, offering contrasting views on the extent to which civil authorities should be allowed to restrict freedom of movement in the name of national security and debating whether aggressive public health interventions improve public confidence and cooperation or detract from them. A major area of concern is preparedness for future terrorist attacks. Chapters are devoted to ethical issues involved in the development, distribution, and rationing of vaccines and antidotes; resource allocation and medical triage; the moral duties of emergency health workers and other first responders; and the obligations of private entities such as managed care organizations and pharmaceutical companies. Contributors also address the implications of terrorism for our health insurance system and the role of genetic advances in bioterrorism. Underlying all of these issues, the authors argue, is the need to maintain a spirit of social solidarity, which can in turn only be achieved if preparations are publicly acknowledged and generally regarded as both prudent and fair

Arguing euthanasia : the controversy over mercy killing, assisted suicide, and the "right to die"( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing Euthanasia brings together for the first time an impressive array of viewpoints from both sides of this emotionally charged question as well as voices from the gravely ill and their loved ones. Beginning with a selection of pieces from the New England Journal of Medicine, where the debate was ignited in 1988, Arguing Euthanasia features essays by such outspoken advocates of active euthanasia as Timothy Quill and Sidney Hook, and important social critics and commentators such as Nat Hentoff, Leon R. Kass, and Ronald Dworkin. As they probe the legal and ethical issues at the heart of physician-assisted suicide, these essays offer invaluable insights not only for those caring for the terminally ill but for anyone concerned with the deeper philosophical conflict between enduring life-oriented values and personal dignity that lies at the heart of this controversy
Is there an ethicist in the house? : on the cutting edge of bioethics by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this timely book, Jonathan D. Moreno discusses some of the most important issues in clinical ethics today. Moreno argues that moral values emerge out of human experience, a view that creates a compelling conceptual framework for bioethics." "To begin, Moreno recalls his experience as a hospital ethicist and how that shaped his understanding of what bioethics is about, both in theory and in practice. He then turns his focus to a difficult moral paradox: the need to advance medical knowledge by using human beings in research. Noting that American medicine has reached a strong protectionist approach to managing this paradox, Moreno calls our attention to vulnerable groups whose circumstances demand that we reflect on the way research using human subjects should be approached in the future."--Jacket
Mind wars : brain research and national defense by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigates the deeply intertwined worlds of cutting-edge brain science, U.S. defense agencies, and a volatile geopolitical landscape where a nation's weaponry must go far beyond bombs and men. The first-ever exploration of the connections between national security and brain research, Mind Wars: Brain Research and National Defense reveals how many questions crowd this gray intersection of science and government and urges us to begin to answer them. From neuropharmacology to neural imaging to brain-machine interface devices that relay images and sounds between human brains and machines, Moreno shows how national security entities seek to harness the human nervous system in a multitude of ways as a potent weapon against the enemy soldier. Moreno charts such projects as monkeys moving robotic arms with their minds, technology to read the brain's thought patterns at a distance, the development of "anti-sleep" drugs to enhance soldiers' battle performance and others to dampen their emotional reactions to the violence, and advances that could open the door to "neuroweapons" virus-transported molecules to addle the brain
The body politic : the battle over science in America by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have entered what is called the "biological century" and a new biopolitics has emerged to address the implications for America's collective value system, our well-being, and ultimately, our future. The Body Politic is the first book to recognize and assess this new force in our political landscape--one that fuels today's culture wars and has motivated politicians of all stripes to reexamine their platforms. As Moreno explains the most contentious issues, he also offers an engaging history of the intersection between science and democracy in American life, a reasoned (and often surprising) analysis of how different political ideologies view scientific controversies, and a vision for how the new biopolitics can help shape the quality of our lives
Deciding together : bioethics and moral consensus by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by a medical school professor trained in philosophy, this timely work tackles these questions from philosophical, historical, and social scientific standpoints. It begins by describing the traditional ambivalence about consensus in Western culture as well as the uncertain relationship in modernity between consensus and expertise. After outlining the current bioethical consensus, the book gives philosophical and political analyses of the idea of consensus, then assesses the role of consensus in national ethics commissions and in the ethics committee movement. Moreno constructs an original, naturalistic philosophy of moral consensus, referred to as "bioethical naturalism", and then applies sociology and social psychology to actual consensus processes. The book concludes with an account of bioethics as a consensus-oriented social reform movement
The Qualitative-quantitative distinction in the social sciences by Barry Glassner( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Without of course adopting a Platonic metaphysics, the eighteenth-century philosophes were Grecophiles who regarded the Athenian philosophers as their intellectual forbearers and mentors. So powerful was their identification with c1assification that ancient ideas were taken as keys to the design of the modem world, but usually the ideas were taken separately and as divided from their systematic context. The power of number was an idea the En lightenment thinkers deployed with their legendary passion and vigor, particularly as an instrument for social reconstruction. It is no exaggemtion to say that the role of quantities in contemporary social scientific theorizing cannot be understood with any depth absent a recollection of the philosophes' axial development of the notion of quantification. It is a commonplace that for the philosophes progress required releasing human abilities to have power over nature. Aprerequisite for this power was knowledge of the underlying causes of natural events, knowledge that required quantitative precision. Enlightenment thinkers were sufficiently aware of themselves as products of their time to appreciate the importance of a liberal social environment to the knowledge enterprise; the supposition that the reverse is also the case, that enhanced knowledge could advance social conditions, came easily

Science next : innovation for the common good from the Center for American Progress( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bioethics professor Moreno (Mind Wars: Brain Research and National Defense) and science reporter Weiss, both of the Center for American Progress, have compiled a compact volume exploring the status and future of many hot topics in science and public policy today, which should leave readers appalled at the past eight years and hopeful for the next. Despite subsidized Big Oil, infrastructure collapse, food inspection system failures and ever worsening wildfires, this volume brings hope into focus with reports of innovation that will enhance lives, from caregivers to those running out of fresh water, from No Child Left Behind to university research. Concise, informative contributions include internet co-creator Vinton Cerf on why the U.S. should respond to climate change like it did to Sputnik, and CAP senior fellow Rick Weiss proclaiming bluntly that "federal tax dollars should not be supporting schools that persist in teaching myths in science classes." There's also numerous recommendations from CAP's 2008 National Innovation Agenda for enhancing the utility, visibility and "sexiness" of science in the U.S. (Apr.)

Impromptu man : J.L. Moreno and the origins of psychodrama, encounter culture, and the social network by Jonathan D Moreno( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacob L. Moreno (1889-1974) was an early critic of Freud, wrote landmark works of Viennese expressionism, founded an experimental theater where he discovered Peter Lorre, influenced Martin Buber, and became one of the most important psychiatrists and social scientists of his time. A mystic, theater impresario, and inventor in his youth, Moreno immigrated to America in 1926, where he trained famous actors, introduced group therapy, and was a forerunner of humanistic psychology. As a social reformer he reorganized schools, prisons, and refugee camps. Moreno's methods have been adopted by improvisational theater, military organizations, educators, business leaders, and trial lawyers. His studies of social networks laid the groundwork for social media like Twitter and Facebook. Using original interviews with figures like Clay Shirky, Gloria Steinem, and Werner Erhard, written sources, and the author's own perspective growing up as the son of an innovative genius, Impromptu Man is the study of a great and largely unsung figure of the last century"--
