Oxford University Press; 3rd Edition
The third edition of Bioethics: Principles, Issues, and Cases (PDF) investigates the philosophical, social, medical, and legal aspects of fundamental bioethical concerns. After providing a comprehensive introduction to ethics, bioethics, and ethical reasoning, the book moves on to discuss significant ethical theories and the criteria for evaluating them. This work covers some of the most contentious and thought-provoking issues in bioethics. It contains eighty-nine readings, twelve of which are brand new to this edition, six fundamental bioethical cases, and a sufficient supply of instructional tools.
Students are helped in their ability to apply theories to issues by the “Applying Major Theories” portions that are located at the end of each chapter.
Within the body of the text, “Key Terms” are denoted by boldfaced boxes, and their definitions can be found in a glossary at the back of the book.
The “Classic Case Files” provide a summary of the landmark cases that created the dialogue, whereas the thought-provoking “Cases for Evaluation” encourage students to formulate their own own perspectives.
Numerous textual content containers: “In-Depth” containers include additional materials; analyses or illustrations; a lot of it is “ripped from the headlines”; “Fact File” containers supply statistics on the social; scientific and medical aspects of a chapter’s subject; and “Legal Brief” containers condense essential court docket rulings and the standing of main laws.
“If you are taking a broad undergraduate course in medical ethics, there is no better ebook than this one. The summaries of each chapter are clear, succinct, and interesting, and the cases contribute to the development of fruitful starting debates. Bowling Green State University’s David Schwan
“Real-life classic instances, ethical theory, and pertinent policy papers all find a place in the field of bioethics, which achieves a solid balance between all three. Students in a diverse array of academic fields, including philosophy, public health, health sciences, and medicine, should feel comfortable studying here as a result. I have several colleagues that teach beginning levels of bioethics courses, and I will heartily recommend this ebook to each and every one of them. I would like to call attention to its comprehensive nature, as well as its user-friendly format and resources, as well as the useful balance it maintains between theoretical concepts and practical applications, as well as primary sources and examples. — Pascalev Assya; Howard University
