9780415476331: Arguing About Bioethics (Arguing About Philosophy)

Arguing About Bioethics is a fresh and exciting collection of essential readings in bioethics, offering a comprehensive introduction to and overview of the field. Influential contributions from established philosophers and bioethicists, such as Peter Singer, Thomas Nagel, Judith Jarvis Thomson and Michael Sandel, are combined with the best recent work in the subject.

Organised into clear sections, readings have been chosen that engage with one another, and often take opposing views on the same question, helping students get to grips with the key areas of debate. All the core issues in bioethics are covered, alongside new controversies that are emerging in the field, including:

  • embryo research
  • selecting children and enhancing humans
  • human cloning
  • using animals for medical purposes
  • organ donation
  • consent and autonomy
  • public health ethics
  • resource allocation
  • developing world bioethics
  • assisted suicide.

Each extract selected is clear, stimulating and free from unnecessary jargon. The editor’s accessible and engaging section introductions make Arguing About Bioethics ideal for those studying bioethics for the first time, while more advanced readers will be challenged by the rigorous and thought-provoking arguments presented in the readings.

Review:

"An unmatched resource for students and researchers in bioethics. In following arguments about key issues from agenda-setting articles through to the best recent contributions, it takes readers to the heart of contemporary debates." – Justin Oakley, Monash University, Australia

"An excellent entry-point to the field of bioethics. The thought-provoking and accessible readings, and the valuable editor's introductions, make this collection a rich and useful resource for students, teachers, and non-specialist readers." - Gardar Arnason, Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany
