Description

The moral dilemmas raised by modern medicine--test-tube babies, the mechanical prolongation of life, the prescription of contraceptive pills to underage girls, the nontreatment of handicapped newborns--are no longer the concerns of doctors alone, but are the subject of intense public debate. In this book, eight well-known experts--including philosophers R.M. Hare, Dame Mary Warnock and Bernard Williams, physician Muir Gray, and editor Raanon Gillon, of the Journal of Medical Ethics-- address these concerns from philosophical, medical, and legal points of view. Clearly written and thought-provoking, these essays will contribute to the understanding of contemporary moral thinking and medical practice, and will inform public debate.show more
