Full description for Ordinary and Extraordinary Means
Originally published as a doctoral dissertation, Daniel A. Cronin's survey of moral theology on the topic of ordinary and extraordinary means remains the standard reference work on this critically important distinction for end-of-life decision-making. Cronin examines the major authors from the Catholic historical tradition on this important distinction, showing how the difference between "ordinary" and "extraordinary" has developed with the progress of medical science. Continuously cited since its first publication, this revised edition brings the classic text back into print.
