Birth, suffering, and death : Catholic perspectives at the edges of life by Kevin Wm Wildes( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is an effort, from within the tradition of Catholic moral theology and philosophy, to examine issues which are raised by the possibilities of medical treatment for those patients who are dying. The book looks at possible issues for newborns, the elderly, and those, at any age, with terminal disease such as AIDS. The book examines specific moral issues such as when death occurs, the extent of obligations to treat patients, and the notion of `responsibility' towards such patients. From the Foreword by Edmund D. Pellegrino: `This new Catholic Studies in Bioethics series, inaugurated with this volume, is a welcome addition to the expanding world literature in biomedical ethics. It offers a forum in which qualified scholars in the Roman Catholic tradition may present their critical reflections for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Edited as it is by a panel of international scholars, the new series promises to reach a wide audience among theologians, health professionals, and moral philosophers.'
Moral acquaintances : methodology in bioethics by Kevin Wm Wildes( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moral Acquaintances: Methodology in Bioethics does not focus on moral reactions to controversy, but rather on how we conceive of and define the controversy, and then how we seek a moral course of action." "Wildes argues that the methodological issues in bioethics mirror the experience of moral pluralism in secular society. The different methods that have been used in the field reflect the different moral views found in a pluralistic society. Rather than assume that there is only one method for all or that we are lost in moral pluralism, Wildes argues that we can imagine ourselves instead as moral acquaintances."--Jacket

The edge of life : human dignity and contemporary bioethics by Christopher Robert Kaczor( )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resituates bioethics in fundamental outlook by challenging both the dominant Kantian and utilitarian approaches to evaluating how new technologies apply to human life. Drawing on an analysis of the dignity of the human person, both as an agent and as the recipient of action, this book presents a "theoretical" approach to the problems of contemporary bioethics and applies this approach to various disputed questions. Should conjoined twins be split, if the division will end the life of the weaker twin? Was Bush's stem cell research decision morally acceptable? Are the 'quality of life' and 'sanctity of life' ethics irreconcilably incompatible? Accessible to both scholars and students, The Edge of Life focuses particularly on the controversial issues surrounding the beginning and ending of human life, tackling some of the toughest practical questions of bioethics including new reproductive technologies (artificial wombs), stem cell research, abortion and physician assisted suici

Leibniz on individuals and individuation : the persistence of premodern ideas in modern philosophy by Laurence B McCullough( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book achieves a number of scholarly `firsts': the first account of Leibniz's philosophy on individuals and the principle of individuation; the first exploration of Leibniz's earliest philosophy, its sources in later scholastic philosophy, and the influence of those sources on his mature philosophy; bringing together in one place numerous Latin scholastic and Leibnizian texts, with many translated into English. On the basis of a thorough study of Leibniz's earliest philosophy, a new interpretation of central themes in Leibniz's philosophy is offered. This scholarly investigation demonstrates the persistence of premodern ideas in modern philosophy, calling into question in what sense Leibniz is a `modern' philosopher and how the `modern' should be understood in modern philosophy and postmodernism. The intended audience includes historians of modern and later scholastic philosophy, Leibniz scholars, historians of ideas, philosophers with an interest in ontology and metaphysics, and graduate students in philosophy
Solidarity in health and social care in Europe by R. H. J. ter Meulen( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is written for scholars and analysts in the field of health policy, philosophy of health care, and biomedical ethics, particularly the ethics of resource allocation and the just distribution of scarce resources. The book provides students and scholars with an improved understanding of solidarity as a fundamental value in health care and social care, by comparing it with traditional approaches to justice, fairness, and individual freedom. In addition, the reader is provided with empirical evidence of the socio-cultural views of solidarity, which may contribute to a better understanding of its determinants at the national level. The book has strong applied and policy dimensions. By giving examples of the way solidarity can be institutionalised and practised, the book may make an important contribution to the debate on health care reform and health care policy in Europe as well as the United States
The (coming) age of thresholding by Stephen A Erickson( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stephen Erickson argues that we are entering into a new historical moment, a period which will only be properly defined and named by those who come after us, as were the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. Erickson predicts a failure and eventual breakdown of traditional values and institutions resulting in a dramatic change in our understanding of human life. This he illustrates with clear examples from contemporary political, economic and religious circumstances. To lessen the impact of this dramatic changeover, which will be initially experienced as upheaval and global anxiety, Erickson argues that we must do all we can to come into this new era, which he has called The Age of Thresholding, with a better understanding of our past and present

Institutional integrity in health care by Ana Smith Iltis( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health care delivery has become institutionalized. As a result, health care organizations now have the power to determine who has access to what kind of health care and under what circumstances. They shape as well the ethics of the various health care professions. These developments have provoked controversies about what kind of obligations such health care organizations have to patients, caregivers, and society at large. In order to respond to these controversies, an account of health care organizational ethics has become necessary. The essays in this volume: -are drawn from an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars in this growing field; -address the nature of health care organizational ethics, including such issues as corporate fraud and institutional moral integrity; -cover the broad range of issues that must be addressed for a coherent discussion of organizational moral responsibility; -cover the range of theoretical and practical issues like no other volume; -are of interest to researchers, students and professionals working in the fields of bioethics, health care administration and management, organizational science, and business ethics
Solidarity by Kurt Bayertz( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solidarity as a phenomenon lies like an erratic block in the midst of the moral landscape of our age. Until now, the geologists familiar with this landscape - ethicists and moral theorists - have taken it for granted, have circumnavigated it! in any case, they have been incapable of moving it. In the present volume, scientists from diverse disciplines discuss and examine the concept of solidarity, its history, its scope and its limits
