Bioethics and the New Embryology - 05 edition

Bioethics and the New Embryology (ISBN10: 0716773457; ISBN13: 9780716773450)
ISBN13: 978-0716773450
ISBN10: 0716773457

Summary: Designed for freshman seminars, adult education courses, and ethics units in biology classes, this book presents enough science so that readers can make an informed analysis of the issues and know what factual data are consistent (or are not consistent) with their ethical views.

The two-chapter units address specific questions, juxtaposing the scientific "facts" (in the initial chapter) with the ethical questions (in the second chapter). While the
science has been simplified and explained at the level of an introductory biology course, it successfully conveys the essential information for useful discussions. The final unit contains information and discussion about three topics-the definition of "normal," the question of genetic determinism, and the use of animals in scientific research-that predate the "embryological revolution" but remain important issues for scientists and concerned citizens alike to consider.
