Show Summary Details

Preview

The Oxford Handbook of Bioethics is an authoritative, state-of-the-art guide to current issues in bioethics. Thirty-four contributors reflect the interdisciplinary nature that is characteristic of bioethics, and its increasingly international character. Thirty topics are covered in articles written by some of the world's leading figures in the field, as well as by some newer ‘up-and-comers’. The articles address both perennial issues, such as the methodology of bioethics, autonomy, justice, death, and moral status, and newer issues, such as bio-banking, stem cell research, cloning, pharmacogenomics, and bioterrorism. Other topics concern mental illness and moral agency, the rule of double effect, justice and the elderly, the definition of death, organ transplantation, feminist approaches to commodification of the body, life extension, advance directives, physician-assisted death, abortion, genetic research, population screening, enhancement, research ethics, and the implications of public and global health for bioethics.

Keywords: methodology; autonomy; justice; death; morality; bio-banking; stem cell research; cloning; pharmacogenomics; bioterrorism; mental illness; rule of double effect; elderly; death; organ transplantation; feminist approaches; commodification of the body; life
