Medical Responsibility: Paternalism, Informed Consent and Euthanasia (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


As our powerful medical technology continues rapidly to develop, we seem to be confronted by fresh bioethical dilemmas at an ever increasing rate. This volume provides an introduction to modern thinking on these issues, concentrating particularly on paternalism, informed consent and euthanasia. By developing in-depth philosophical perspectives on the common moral concerns underlying these apparently diverse problems, the contributors provide an account of the very fundamentals of medical ethics. Throughout, they endeavour to clarify key concepts, to examine basic assumptions and values, and to address normative issues raised in bioethical contexts, often illuminating their ideas with schematic or actual case histories, including treatments of: the justification of paternalism; ethics of human experimentation; morality of nontherapeutic fetal experimentation; euthanasia, killing, and letting die; morality and medical experimentation; catch-22 paternalism; mandatory genetic screening; informed consent; justice in foetal experimentation; active and passive euthanasia; medical agency and negative acts; and experimentation on prisoners.
