About the Author:

Stephen G. Post is president of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love at Stony Brook University.


"Thought-provoking and timely. . . . Post demonstrates a rare ability to synthesize theological and secular strains of moral thought in grappling with some of the most difficult ethical challenges posed by contemporary medicine and science. Post handles topics as diverse as adoption, animal rights, and euthanasia with clarity and insight. He shows that one of the ways morality can keep pace with changes fostered by developments in biomedicine is to look backwards into its own rich canon. There Post finds the framework of virtues, norms and values that he successfully wields to shed light on some of the thorniest issues of our day. Inquiries in Bioethics is an important work from an important new voice in bioethics."―Arthur L. Caplan, director, Center for Biomedical Ethics, University of Minnesota

"Finally we have a book in bioethics that refuses to be theory-driven. Instead, Post shows how attending to what we actually care about, such as having children, caring for the aged, and even love, can give direction to issues in bioethics. This is a book filled with uncommon common sense and wisdom. I heartily recommend it to anyone."―Stanley Hauerwas, professor of theological ethics, The Divinity School, Duke University

"A highly readable collection of essays revealing the author's humanistic breadth in a rich blend of evidence, argument, history, and anecdote. His conclusions do not always reflect popular positions, yet his common sense and critical insights are likely to impress even those who disagree."―Mary B. Mahowald, professor and assistant director, The Center for Clinical Medical Ethics, The University of Chicago
