9781133587149: Intervention and Reflection: Basic Issues in Bioethics

In INTERVENTION AND REFLECTION, nationally acclaimed bioethicist and novelist Ronald Munson masterfully weds clear and accurate accounts of complex scientific findings with case presentations whose vivid narrative helps students connect science with the human emotion behind important and controversial biomedical decisions. These engaging cases and briefings conclude with succinct summaries of basic ethical theories and are followed by up-to-date and influential articles addressing the most pressing issues in bioethics today. The vibrant writing, along with the wide variety of current cases and issues, make the book appealing and provocative to readers ranging from those with no philosophical or scientific training to those in programs in philosophy, nursing, or medicine. You will quickly learn why INTERVENTION AND REFLECTION continues to be the most widely used bioethics textbook on the market: This unusual text is surprisingly hard to put down.

"Munson does an excellent job of introducing the sections, and I like how each new edition stays up-to-date on the latest issues in bioethics." -- Timothy Madigan, Saint John Fisher College

"This book is an in-depth anthology of important classical readings in medical ethics combined with up-to-date social, legal, and philosophical evaluations of important issues in medical ethics." -- Stephen Hanson, University of Louisville

"This volume is a well-thought out introduction to key issues in medical ethics that combines a critical and conceptual approach with the reality of medical practice." -- Fabrice Jotterand, UT Southwestern Medical School

"The author does an excellent job of taking a vast number of content areas and packaging them into an accessible and thoughtful text." -- Kristen Tym, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

" . . . it is a very comprehensive text that takes up the major bioethical issues of interest today and that includes seminal articles and stimulating cases for discussion." -- David Schenck, University of South Florida
