The concise encyclopedia of the ethics of new technologies by Ruth F Chadwick( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,616 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)
Encyclopedia of applied ethics by Dan Callahan( Book )

35 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 1,511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applied ethics, a subdiscipline of philosophy, lends itself to an encyclopedia format because of the many industries and intellectual fields that it encompasses. The Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics is based on twelve major categories, such as Biomedical Ethics and Environmental Ethics. Religious traditions that embody normative beliefs, as well as classical theories of ethics, are explored in a non-judgmental manner. Each of the twelve categories is divided into discrete areas that are covered by 5,000-6,000 word articles. Each of the 281 articles begins with a definition of the subject and includes a table of contents, glossary of key terms, and bibliography. Second- and third- level headings, boxes, sidebars, and the like emphasize the reference-oriented nature of the material. The four volumes are arranged in an A-Z format, with a complete subject index at the end of the last volume. Articles are written by international experts, arranged alphabetically by title, not by subject, and cross-referenced so the reader can locate relevant information in other articles

The right to know and the right not to know by Ruth F Chadwick( Book )

30 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 406 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 )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 241 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 )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 221 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 proofs for the link between diet and disease accumulate, there are increasingly louder calls for policy action." "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."--BOOK JACKET
