Health, disease, and illness : concepts in medicine( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brings together classic and contemporary thinkers to examine the history, state, and future of ever-changing "concepts" in medicine. Divided into four parts--Historical Discussions; Characterizing Health, Disease, and Illness; Clinical Applications of Health and Disease; and Normalcy, Genetic Disease, and Enhancement: The Future of the Concepts of Health and Disease--the reader can see the evolutionary arc of medical concepts from the Greek physician Galen of Pergamum (ca. 150 CE) who proposed that "the best doctor is also a philosopher," to contemporary discussions of the genome and morality. The editors have recognized a crucial need for a deeper integration of medicine and philosophy with each other, particularly in an age of dynamically changing medical science--and what it means, medically, philosophically, to be human

Replacement parts : the ethics of procuring and replacing organs in humans( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The supply of human organs in the United States continues to lag behind demand. By any objective standard the public policy of "encouraged volunteerism," established with the adoption of the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act in 1968, has failed. How should the United States and the health care community address this ongoing scarcity? What strategies would be both morally acceptable and effective? Noted bioethicist Arthur Caplan and his coeditors have brought together seminal essays and articles from the most significant literature in the fields of medicine, policy, philosophy and religion to help analyze and assess these questions. Caplan's introductory essay explains why present policies are inadequate, and succeeding sections of the book address the following issues: the determination of death and the "dead donor rule"; the morally divisive case of anencephalic infants as organ donors; the sale of cadaveric or live organs; strategies for increasing the number of available organs, including the market; and how some organ seekers, such as Apple's Steve Jobs, "game the system" by creating advantageous circumstances for organ donation
