Bioethics has paid surprisingly little attention to the special problems faced by women and to feminist analyses of current health care issues other than reproduction. Feminism & Bioethics: Beyond Reproduction aims to counterbalance this one-sided approach. A breakthrough volume of original essays authored by leading figures in bioethics and feminist theory, it moves beyond reproduction and nursing, taking bioethics into new territory. The book starts with an investigation of the relationship between feminism and bioethics and introduces different approaches to the problem. Chapters stress the importance of liberal feminism which prefers feminist over feminine analysis, integrate the experience of women of color, draw from the women's self-help movement, and apply feminist standpoint theory. In the second part of the book, contributors view various bioethical problems from a feminist perspective: euthanasia, AIDS, the definition of health, doctor-patient communication, the Human Genome Project, the conduct of biomedical research, and health care reform. They examine the pros and cons of the application of gender and feminism to bioethics. This provocative volume is bound to change and broaden the way bioethicists, students, patients, and the public consider bioethical issues.

Review:


"An important summation of the perspectives of several careful thinkers about feminism and feminism's observations about and influence upon bioethics. It will serve as an excellent catch-up tool for those with some prior interest in bioethics who are ready to explore or expand their knowledge about the theories and role of feminist and feminine ethics."-- ournal of the American Medical Association


"This volume of original essays authored by leading figures in bioethics and feminist theory moves beyond reproduction, taking feminist analysis of bioethics into new territory....The authors demonstrate the benefit that results when bioethics pays careful attention to gender and feminism."--Issues in Law & Medicine


"Authors contributing to this collection present thoughtful, compelling, and intriguing arguments well deserving of critical attention...Makes a worthwhile and important contribution to the scholarly literature.--"Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Bioethics tackles the most vexing problems in health care and the biological sciences: from reproductive technologies to euthanasia, the AIDS epidemic, mapping the human genome, human subjects research, and health care reform. Yet surprisingly little attention has been paid to the special problems faced by women and to feminist analyses of current health care issues other than reproduction. This breakthrough volume of original essays authored by leading figures in bioethics and feminist theory moves beyond the areas of reproduction and nursing, taking bioethics into new territory. The book starts with an investigation of the relationship between feminism and bioethics and introduces different approaches to the problem. These chapters stress the importance of liberal feminism that prefers feminist over feminine analysis, integrates the experience of women of color, draws from the women s self-help movement, and uses the feminist stand-point theory. In the second part of the book, the authors apply the feminist perspective to different bioethics problems: euthanasia, AIDS, the definition of health, doctor-patient communication, the Human Genome Project, the conduct of biomedical research, and health care reform. They demonstrate the gain and benefit that results when bioethics pays attention to gender and feminism. This volume will change the way bioethicists, students, patients, and the public think about these profoundly challenging problems. Seller Inventory # AAV9780195095562
