About this item

"The field of bioethics continues to evolve at a breakneck pace. One could hardly ask for a more thorough guide to where it has been, and what values and principles might steer where it is going, than this comprehensive and balanced volume." Arthur Caplan, University of Pennsylvania

"Tins is an outstanding collection which covers all the main issues in bioethics and brings together much of the best philosophical work on them," Dan W. Brock, Harvard Medicol School

"A useful tool to gain an overview of important and influential texts and thinking of leading authors and commentators in bioethics." Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics

Bioethics: An Anthology has become established as the definitive one-volume collection of key primary readings in bioethics. Now fully revised and updated, this third edition reflects current issues and developments, covering all the material that the reader needs to thoroughly grasp the ideas and debates involved in the field. Edited by three highly respected scholars, the anthology brings together writings on an unparalleled range of ethical issues relating to such matters as reproduction, genetics, life and death, and animal experimentation.

This latest edition contains a wealth of new material, including important historical readings and the latest contemporary material published since the release of the second edition in 2006. It includes updated coverage on topics such as the ethics of uterus transplantation, sex selection, brain death and euthanasia, stem cell research, mandatory HIV testing in pregnancy, issues facing nurses, and new sections in the areas of neuroethics and public health ethics. Discussions Lire clearly and compellingly presented by internationally renowned bioethicists.

The volume continues to be of great value as both a textbook and reference work, suitable not only for students of philosophy and moral theology, but for doctors, nurses, sociologists, lawyers, and others working in health care and the biomedical sciences.
