Most widely held works by Ruth F Chadwick
Encyclopedia of applied ethics( Book )

29 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four-volume set includes detailed investigations of historical and theoretical material including topics from the award-winning first edition published in 1998, plus topics on issues that were not or only just barely on the horizon. In addition to the areas in which particular issues arise, it is still essential for those engaged in applied ethics to reflect on what is being 'applied.' The work includes a number of articles on ethical and philosophical approaches, historical and contemporary, religious and secular. ... It is written not only by practitioners in the particular fields in question; but by academics from disciplines such as law and economics. A broad and inclusive table of contents ensures detailed investigation of historical and theoretical material as well as in-depth analysis of current issues."--Publisher description
Ethics, reproduction, and genetic control by Ruth F Chadwick( Book )

40 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and Spanish and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays, with an extended commentary by the editor, is concerned with developments in reproductive technology and the possibilities of genetic engineering. The volume provides a forum for debate between science and society. Leading scientists in the field explain the nature and goals of test tube' reproduction and genetic engineering, and their eugenic implications. Other papers draw out the legal and ethical problems raised by these developments. The ethical dilemmas are discussed both from the point of view of secular moral philosophy and from a theological perspective. The extended commentary attempts to place these questions in the context of a social ethic, rather than an individualist one, in contrast to the approach adopted by the Warnock Report. Ethics, Reproduction and Genetic Control first appeared in hardback in 1987
The concise encyclopedia of the ethics of new technologies by Ruth F Chadwick( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ethical assessment of new technologies raises two principal concerns: the need to develop effective policies and legislation, and the reconsideration of the ethical frameworks in which these policies and laws are developed. The importance of rapid, accurate examinations of tensions between Philosophy and Law and the relationship between philosophical principles and empirical data has never been greater. The Concise Encyclopedia of Ethics of New Technologies includes 23 articles previously published in the highly-acclaimed Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics, nine updated articles, and five new articles, commissioned especially for this volume. Over half of the previously published articles include updated facts and bibliographic citations. Authors of genetics articles have updated their works to include the most recent developments and publications. New articles include: "Cloning," "Geneticization," "Health Technology Assessment," "Intrinsic and Instrumental Value," and "Novel Foods."--Publisher description (LoC)
Ethical issues in journalism and the media( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All over the world codes of conduct have been proposed for journalists. In fact ethics is inseparable from journalism, because the practice of journalism is centred on a set of essentially ethical concepts: freedom, democracy, truth, objectivity, honesty, privacy. If the proper role of journalism is seen as providing information, then the ethical questions focus on one issue: maintaining the quality of the information. This issue has become a matter of political controversy and public concern. The media is often perceived as being inaccurate and biased. The Robert Maxwell case has re-opened the issue of media ownership. Questions of censorship and freedom of information have arisen in connection with Spycatcher', the numerous recent incidents involving members of the royal family, politicians and the general public, the fight against terrorism in Northern Ireland and the wars in the Falklands and the Gulf. Parliament has threatened statutory controls if the voluntary partnership of the Press Complaints Commission and the newspaper industry cannot curb gross invasions of privacy and other malpractices by the tabloid press.; There is much concern about the trivialising and exploitative representation of women in the media. This book addresses issues such as these in ways that are both philosophical and practical, critical and constructive, perennial and topical
The right to know and the right not to know by Ruth F Chadwick( Book )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The privacy concerns discussed in the 1990s in relation to the New Genetics failed to anticipate the relevant issues for individuals, families, geneticists and society. Consumers, for example, can now buy their personal genetic information and share it online. The challenges facing genetic privacy have evolved as new biotechnologies have developed, and personal privacy is increasingly challenged by the irrepressible flow of electronic data between the personal and public spheres and by surveillance for terrorism and security risks. This book considers the right to know and the right not to know about your own and others' genomes. It discusses new privacy concerns and developments in ethical thinking, with the greater emphasis on solidarity and equity. The multidisciplinary approach covers current topics such as biobanks and forensic databases, DIY testing, group rights and accountability, the food we eat and the role of the press and the new digital media"--

The ethics of genetic screening by Ruth F Chadwick( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a multidisciplinary and multinational collection of papers on aspects of genetic screening, with special reference to the situation in Europe. Starting from the situation in practice, the book proceeds to examine what lessons, if any, can be learned from historical precedents and sociological perspectives and concludes by exploring the extent to which theoretical ethical frameworks can assist in addressing the practice and policy issues in screening. This exploration points to ways in which genetics itself affects and challenge those frameworks. This collection will be of interest to practitioners, ethicists and policy-makers alike
Functional foods by Ruth F Chadwick( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Functional Foods are being introduced into society at a particularly sensitive moment. Diet-related diseases have assumed proper epidemic proportions significantly affecting the quality of life while obesity is spreading not only to the majority of the adult population but also, more worryingly, to young people who rarely have the option of alternative diets. As scientific proof for the link between diet and disease accumulation, there are increasingly louder calls for policy action. At the same time, food has been high on the political agenda in recent years. As a result of food scandals such as BSE, dioxin and foot and mouth disease, and also partly due to public discontent arising from the introduction of genetically modified foodstuffs in the market, food has become a main issue in public debates and a focal point of political activity in Europe. Consumer trust in food production and the ability of authorities to protect them has been eroded, as there is widespread suspicion in public transparency and important information is lacking. Consequently, there are also calls for more coherence, transparency and accountability in food issues. It is within this situation that Functional Foods have been developed. They assume a highly targeted solution to diet related diseases with effective reduction of risk and improved physical and mental well-being, but are still faced with a host of unresolved issues. This report reviews Functional Foods from a multidisciplinary perspective focusing on safety, legal/policy aspects, economy, public perceptions and ethics. It attempts to clarify the main issues and provides comprehensive recommendations for policymaking
