Product Description

Review

The field of bioethics continues to evolve at a breakneckpace. One could hardly ask for a more thorough guide to where ithas been, and what values and principles might steer where it isgoing, than this comprehensive and balanced volume. Arthur Caplan, University ofPennsylvania<!––end––>


This is an outstanding, up–to–date collection whichcovers all the main issues in bioethics and brings together much ofthe best philosophical work on them. Dan W. Brock,Harvard Medical School

"A useful tool to gain an overview of important an influentialtexts and thinking of leading authors and commentators inbioethics." Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics

From the Back Cover

Since it was first published in 1999, Helga Kuhse and PeterSinger s Bioethics: An Anthology has becomeestablished as the definitive one–volume collection of key primaryreadings in bioethics. Alongside coverage of issues such asreproduction, genetics, life and death, and animal experimentation,this expanded and revised edition now features essays on hot topicssuch as genetic screening, the use of embryonic human stem cells,and resource allocation between patients. New section introductionswritten by the editors shed light on the matters explored, and anextensive index makes it easy to navigate the text.


Designed to complement A Companion to Bioethics, alsoedited by Helga Kuhse and Peter Singer(1999), the volume willcontinue to be of great value as both a textbook and referencework, suitable not only for students of philosophy and moraltheology, but also for doctors, nurses, sociologists, lawyers, andothers working in health care and the biomedical sciences.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book to be really useful with my nursing ethics module, as it takes into consideration issues such as abortion, euthanasia (including newborn euthanasia), allocation of resources, organ donation etc. It also looks at nursing as an ethical issue. This book will come in handy for other modules, as this book addresses a lot of nursing issues, of which are likely to crop up at certain stages in my course. A very interesting read.

Great Read for a Premed Student 7 Jan. 2010
By Brian Ascani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was sent to me in a timely fashion and is a great read for anyone choosing a career in medicine. The articles cover a variety of issues such as abortion, end of life decisions, euthanasia, gene therapy, and more. No matter your views of such matters, it teaches one to look at the issues from a different perspective.
A collection of proponents and opponents on several ethical issues in the modern medical field. 14 Oct. 2010
By Gus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An insight on issues we're facing today in the medical field. Some are considered controversial and some conflicting with religions. The ideas are built on prima faciae basis that sometime neglects our core issue, which's the emotions and feelings we possess, uniquely as human beings.

The book, Bioethics: An Anthology, sure gives me all the ground work material that I need in my pursuit of research in Bioethics. I just made a trial attempt purchasing this book from Amazon.com; it worked. Will go for more books when I have money.
