Summary

New Features

  • Explores up-to-date topics and examples never before featured in texts of this kind, including: the Schiavo case, alcoholism and free will (the Crowfeather case), research on schizophrenia (Greg Friend's case), harm to live organ donors (Laura Giese's case), Paul Farmer's efforts fighting for the world's poor, frequent first trimester abortions on the basis of genetic conditions, and a sympathetic discussion of Jehovah Witnesses in medicine.
  • Weaves the discussion of ethical theories into examples throughout the text rather than isolating them to separate chapters.
  • Uses a clear and simple writing style, making the text accessible to students in an introductory class, without sacrificing in-depth coverage of key ethical theories.
