Book Description

Review ?The field of bioethics continues to evolve at a breakneck pace. One could hardly ask for a more thorough guide to where it has been, and what values and principles might steer where it is going, than this comprehensive and balanced volume.? Arthur Caplan, University of Pennsylvania ?This is an outstanding, up-to-date collection which covers all the main issues in bioethics and brings together much of the best philosophical work on them.? Dan W. Brock, Harvard Medical School 'A useful tool to gain an overview of important an influential texts and thinking of leading authors and commentators in bioethics.' Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics Read more From the Back Cover Since it was first published in 1999, Helga Kuhse and Peter Singer?s Bioethics: An Anthology has become established as the definitive one-volume collection of key primary readings in bioethics. Alongside coverage of issues such as reproduction, genetics, life and death, and animal experimentation, this expanded and revised edition now features essays on hot topics such as genetic screening, the use of embryonic human stem cells, and resource allocation between patients. New section introductions written by the editors shed light on the matters explored, and an extensive index makes it easy to navigate the text. Designed to complement A Companion to Bioethics, also edited by Helga Kuhse and Peter Singer(1999), the volume will continue to be of great value as both a textbook and reference work, suitable not only for students of philosophy and moral theology, but also for doctors, nurses, sociologists, lawyers, and others working in health care and the biomedical sciences.
