Classical Works in Medical Ethics : Core Philosophical Readings - 98 edition

Classical Works in Medical Ethics : Core Philosophical Readings (ISBN10: 0070381151; ISBN13: 9780070381155)
ISBN13: 978-0070381155
ISBN10: 0070381151

Summary: After thirty years, Medical Ethics has matured to where a collection of core writings in the field is now possible. There is even a danger that some classic articles will cease to be known because they are no longer included in "issue of the moment" anthologies. This book offers classic, well-written articles that have stood the test of time and have something to teach. These are articles with good philosophical analysis dealing with important topics and ma
king significant contributions to understanding of issues. There are no long, boring selections from government commissions or technical pieces from scientific journals. Many selections illustrate how and why philosophers contributed to the progress of medical ethics. The articles cluster around several broad philosophical questions: terminating the lives of dying patients; assisting human life to begin outside the womb; terminating the beginnings of human life; personhood and higher animals, fetuses, impaired newborns, comatose patients; individual rights against the greater social good; and allocating scarce medical resources.

This anthology of famous medical ethics articles is edited by the same author who edited Classic Cases in Medical Ethics, which can be used as a companion paperback.

This is the first and only anthology to emphasize core philosophical articles in medical ethics from the last 20 years.
