Life and death : philosophical essays in biomedical ethics by Dan W Brock( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should modern medicine's dramatic new powers to sustain life be employed? How should limited resources be used to extend and improve the quality of life? In this collection, Dan Brock, a distinguished philosopher and bioethicist and co-author of Deciding for Others (Cambridge, 1989), explores the moral issues raised by new ideals of shared decision making between physicians and patients. The book develops an ethical framework for decisions about life-sustaining treatment and euthanasia, and examines how these life and death decisions are transformed in health policy when the focus shifts from what is best for a patient to what is just for all patients. Professor Brock combines acute philosophical analysis with a deep understanding of the realities of clinical health policy. This is a volume for philosophers concerned with medical ethics, health policy professionals, physicians interested in bioethics, and undergraduate courses in biomedical ethics

This volume on euthanasia and assisted suicide brings together previously unpublished works that were developed before and after a three-day conference sponsored by selected faculty from the Kennedy institute of Ethics at Georgetown University and the Schools of Medicine and Public Health at The Johns Hopkins University. The essays explore philosophical, clinical, political, legal, and economic perspectives on intentionally causing death by either an active or passive means.--From publisher description

From chance to choice : genetics and justice by Allen E Buchanan( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book probes the implications of advances in genetics. The authors ask how they should affect our understanding of distributive justice, equality in opportunity, the rights and obligations as parents, the meaning of disability, and the role of the concept of human nature in ethical theory and practice." "The book offers a historical context to contemporary debate over the use of these technologies by providing an ethical autopsy of mankind's first attempts to use the scientific knowledge of heredity to improve human lives: the eugenics movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Appendices explain the nature of genetic causation and gene-environment interaction, and expose widespread misconceptions of genetic determinism, as well as outline the nature of the ethical analysis used in the book." "The questions raised in this book will be of interest to any reflective reader concerned about science and society and the rapid development of biotechnology, as well as to professionals in such areas as philosophy, bioethics, medical ethics, health management, law, and political science."--Jacket
