Health care and the ethics of encounter : a Jewish discussion of social justice by Laurie Zoloth( )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last several years have seen a sharpening of debate in the United States regarding the problem of steadily increasing medical expenditures, as well as inflation in health care costs, a scarcity of health care resources, and a lack of access for a growing number of people in the national health care system. Some observers suggest that we in fact face two crises: the crisis of scarce resources and the crisis of inadequate language in the discourse of ethics for framing a response. The author offers a bold claim: to renew our chances of achieving social justice, she argues, we must turn to the Jewish tradition. That tradition envisions an ethics of conversational encounter that is deeply social and profoundly public, as well as offering resources for recovering a language of community that addresses the issues raised by the health care allocation debate

Oncofertility : ethical, legal, social, and medical perspectives by Teresa K Woodruff( )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oncofertility has emerged as a way to address potential lost or impaired fertility in cancer patients and survivors, with active biomedical research that is developing new ways to help these individuals preserve their ability to have biological children. In order to move beyond oncofertility as a science and medical technology and begin to address the ethical, legal, and social ramifications of this emerging field, we must give voice to scholars from the humanities and social sciences to engage in a multidisciplinary discussion. This book brings together a pool of experts from a variety of fie

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Laurie Zoloth, Ph. D. (Professor and Chair, Jewish Studies Program, San Francisco State University, and Visiting Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia [1999/2000]) spoke on the various aspects of genetics research and its impact on the public. Dr. Zoloth focused on the pluipotentiality of human embryonic stem cells (i.e. blastocytic embryonic cells) and the testing of these cells utilized in drugs to combat diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, transplant potentials, germ line interventions, and reversing or slowing down the effects of aging. She ended with a call to envision the dilemmas of genetic research as an "exodic journey" into discovering "what we are led to do with genetic research"; such as, rewriting the language of life. William A. Knaus, M.D. (Evelyn Troup Hobson, Professor and Chair, Department of Health Evaluation Sciences, University of Virginia) commented on the fact that "there is nothing in science/research that we will not do" and that the future will be different and we need new words, concepts, and relationships. Dr. Knaus ended his comments with the future focusing on "potentials" and not "diseases as one example of creating new vision/concepts."
