Bioethics for Beginners: 60 Cases and Cautions from the Moral Frontier of Healthcare
Date:5/31/2012

Bioethics for Beginners maps the giant dilemmas posed by new technologies and medical choices, using 60 cases taken from our headlines, and from the worlds of medicine and science.

This eminently readable book takes it one case at a time, shedding light on the social, economic and legal side of 21st century medicine while giving the reader an informed basis on which to answer personal, practical questions such as:

  • Should we test and modify our genes?
  • How much is too much in the world of designer food and pets?
  • Should we enhance ourselves and if so, how far beyond our natural abilities?
  • Must we design our children?
  • How long should we plan to live, and how should we think about dying in the 21st Century?

Unlocking the debate behind the headlines, this book combines clear thinking with the very latest from the frontiers of science and medicine, enabling readers to decide for themselves exactly what the scientific future should hold.
